Now before you gorge yourselves on chocolate eggs we’d like to update you on what we’ve got coming up for the month of April.
We’ve had a cracking start to the year and this month is just as good with four gigs lined up as follows:

Friday 9th April – King Edward VII, Dane Valley Road, Margate CT9 3RD
Our first visit to Dave’s hometown and we’re sandwiched between local rock outfits A Thousand Lights and Tin Soldiers. The King Edward is fast establishing itself as a great rock music venue and welcomes punters from an “alternative” background. Entrance is free too!!

Saturday 10th April – Hufflers Arms, Hythe Street, Dartford DA1 1BN
From one end of Kent to the other! The Hufflers plays host to a new punk/new wave live music night called The Who Club, and we’re very happy to be playing the opening night. A great spit n sawdust venue, The Vas Deferens kick things off and we’ll keep the floorboards flexing. Free entry to this one and five minutes from the station!

Wednesday 21st April – Death Disco, Notting Hill Arts Club, 12 Notting Hill Gate, London W11 3JQ
We must have impressed Alan McGee last time we played to him cos he’s invited us to play his long running Death Disco night!
Since retiring from the music industry and selling Creation Records he has decided to give something back to the music industry and create a forum venue to showcase the up & coming, unsigned and unadulterated live bands. Happy hour til 9.30!
Also appearing are Left Hand Red and DJ Danny Watson. Entrance once again is FREE!!

Saturday 24th April – supporting Purple Hearts at Loco Lounge, The View, West Terrace, Folkestone CT20 1TH
Loco Lounge is a long established music night specialising in 60′s beat and garage bands, northern soul and 50′s surf sounds, often accompanied by some fine burlesque acts. This time they have secured one of the greatest Mod revival era acts and we’ll be warming the crowd up. Tickets are £7.50 or £10 otd. As the venue only holds 150 people we’d strongly advise getting advance tickets by emailing

Also for this month we should be featured in NME’s “A&R W*nker” section so have a rummage in your local newsagents on a wednesday morning and see if we make national music media!

May is very busy too with two trips to the North but we’ll tell you more nearer the time.
You can keep up to date by joining our facebook group “The Deccas Groupies”(!/group.php?v=wall&gid=4686845681). Please invite your friends to join too!!
If you’ve not got a copy of our album “Ways To The Sun” yet it couldn’t be easier; just click the banner at the top of our web page and this’ll take you to our paypal section. Or grab a copy from us at a gig! Only a fiver, go on treat yerself!!

Medway band The Deccas will be playing to Alan McGee (the very same one that discovered Oasis back in his Creation days!)

It’s a club night that he runs called "Greasy Lips" at The Dirty South Bar, Lee High Rd, Lewisham. All bands are reviewed by Mr McGee for his popular blog.

Friday 6th November and The Deccas will be playing at around 10pm! 3 other bands will be on too including Gimme Shelta from Bexley area, and then the club will ring to the sounds of Mr McGee’s electic music collection.

Tickets are 8 pounds and we’re also looking at sorting a minibus from the Medway area.

Give your fave Decca a shout on to arrange your tickets or drop us an email.
