About
dec8de (pronounced: decade) pays homage to the first wave of alternative music: classic hits featured in all your favorite John Hughes movie soundtracks, early MTV, MTV's 120 Minutes and Sirius/XM radio's popular 1st Wave channel.

Playing a wide variety of songs from one-hit-wonders and now major artists like U2, R.E.M., Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Smiths, New Order, Echo & the Bunnymen, Blur, Psychedelic Furs and many more, dec8de delivers the Classic Alternative experience. Check out the alternative to the average 80's cover band: dec8de!

Here's what previous clients have to say about dec8de:

"Many thanks to dec8de! Your band turned our mundane parties at our River Run Club into an unforgettable event! So much fun was had by all. It was hard to distinguish if all those great bands from the 80's weren't actually there! As one of our club members put it..."dec8de is the best band ever!!!"...I can't wait until the next time!"
Keri Casey / Talent Buyer - River Run Club
Naperville, IL

"Some of the brightest ideas I've ever had involved booking dec8de to play at PANIC! on several occasions. These guys know good Brit-Pop music like Chicago knows a good hot dog. Simply put, dec8de are great guys who appreciate a great hot dog, and play great music. Like a good hot dog, having dec8de play at my events has always left me wanting more and looking forward to the next time."
DJ Arturo / Principal - PANIC! Dance Party @ Darkroom
Chicago, IL

"I can't say enough about how much myself and friends enjoy dec8de. No band had taken me back to the 80's like dec8de has…Every time is a trip down memory lane...We will be regulars at nearby shows and hopefully you guys can become the Tubbypalooza house band for summers to come".
Matt/Tubby - Private Party Client
Riverside, IL

"A crowd favorite, always happy to work with dec8de as they are not only professional and true to their craft but they are a great band."

Dec8de was absolutely fantastic! They worked with my wife and I through the entire process, made it easy for us to see them live before our event so we could "craft" the playlist and even learned a few new tunes just for our celebration event. I would highly recommend them for any event that calls for live music! Their brand of Brit Pop Rock is perfect for dancing for all ages and we received more compliments on the band from friends and family than I would have ever expected. Super professional, fun and highly entertaining- they made the evening wonderful!

These guys were fantastic. The Alt/ New Wave playlist was great, they sounded great. Could not have been better. They made our big wedding party more fun and beautiful. Only down side was we never wanted to leave the dance floor once they started up--apologies to anybody from out of town we missed greeting! This was a hot summer venue and I don't think these dudes took a break until they'd played almost two hours! They were also super easy to work with and came all the way out to Lansing from Chicago. I wish them all the good gigs and will have to make a road trip to see them somewhere when our anniversary roles around!

Dec8de was essential in making our company party a hit! No one left the dance floor the entire time! They were also very accommodating in playing an extra set when we asked them to. Looking forward to having them at another one of our events!
