Sunday 16th May, Supercar Sunday, Top Gear Track, Dunsfold Aerodrome, Cranleigh, Surrey GU6 8TB
Car fan and Deccas drummer Tony wangled us a place on this years bill at this large car event.
Last year over 4,000 people attended with 700 rides from 100 or so supercars.
This year they have been given the go ahead to drive for longer which means more rides and more action all day long.
Live bands including a secret special guest(The Deccas??) helicopter rides (subject to Dunsfold approval) kids rides (including Roary the racing car) car club displays, fun fair, bouncy castles, two massive marquees to shelter from the sun, great food, loads of stands and stalls to keep you occupied, fire engine demonstrations, double decker bus rides.
£20 standard supercar rides (2 high speed passenger laps)
Entrance will be £7 per car with monies being raised for The Children’s Trust.

Friday 21st May, Garage and Retro Night, Command House, Dock Road, Chatham
We team up with our old buddies Mr Bridger for a raucous night of garage, power pop and mod revival sounds in the basement bar.
Entry is only £3 so kick your weekend off in true Medway fashion!!

Friday 28th May, International Pop Overthrow, The Cavern Pub, Matthew Street, Liverpool
Following our successful appearances at last year’s event we’ve managed to land ourselves a couple of slots on this year’s too.
The first of which will be at 4pm in the Cavern Pub (opp Cavern Club)
If you’ve never heard of this event before, please check out www.internationalpopoverthrow.com

Saturday 29th May, International Pop Overthrow, The Cavern Club (front stage), Matthew Street, Liverpool
Our second performance of the weekend, this time at 1pm in the depths of the legendary Cavern Club, on their arch roofed front stage reminiscent of the original stage from the 60′s Merseybeat heyday.
We’ll be heading up a three pronged attack from the Medway delta as, according to the schedule, Theatre Royal and Len Price 3 follow us. Hurrah!!
Entry is free to all venues!!

And then we have a breather! Nothing planned for June so far but we’ll be in touch later in the month.
Keep in touch with us via facebook etc and we hope to see you soon.

The Deccas In March

without comments

Gud ev’ning dedicated Decca fans!
The tiny month of February comes rapidly to and end and we crash headlong into March with……well, a bit of a breather actually!
Not so much a planned pit stop but we are taking the opportunity to take a quick stock of our affairs.

It’s been three whole years since The Deccas took their first steps together and we’ve covered a lot of ground in a fairly short time, playing around 100 gigs at venues and festivals around Kent and London, even The Cavern in Liverpool! Recording two EP’s and our debut album, gaining and then losing a hammond player, trying different images/outfits, making a music video, trying to stop Tony smiling in photos, musing over Phil’s beard and marvelling at the fact Dave actually moves around on stage these days! To say it’s been emotional is putting it mildly….

Our ultimate goal is to hit the “Big Time” and we’ve come to realise there’s still a long way to go, so over the next month we’re gonna polish up our performances, make over our myspace and size up our setlists, even slipping in a few covers. We wanna make “The Deccas” irresistible to all the record companies out there!! Cue evil laughter!!

The main key to any bands success is their following so we hope we can count on you to help us on our way: if you haven’t already done so, join The Deccas Groupies on facebook and then invite all your friends and so on, creating an online snowball!
Pass on these emails to those not on facebook. This will all help you keep up to date with our future gigs and help us maximise our audiences; especially when it comes to London gigs.
Buy our album!! Only a fiver and getting great reviews in a variety of press. If you can’t get to a gig you can order it directly using our new paypal banner at the top of the web page; simples!!
If you are the other side of the Atlantic you can now get hold of us via Kool Kat Music in New Jersey – https://hs69.order-vault.net/koolkatmusik.com/cgi-bin/mivavm/mm5/merchant.mvc?Session_ID=0929277f41191348b71b8998f167d990&Screen=PROD&Product_Code=The_Deccas
Come to our gigs; if you’re not sure how to get to a venue just get in touch as we may be able to offer lifts, even put on a minibus if there’s enough of ya!

The next gig should be easy for most of you; right on our doorstep we expect this place to be heaving to the rafters:
Friday 12th March – Nag’s Head, High Street, Rochester – The Deccas followed by the mighty Len Price 3!!!! Oh yes!! Free entry, easy to find and great bar; you’ll be fools to miss out!!!

Enough waffle, back to the masterplan! We hope to see you soon!
Love and stuff,
Wes, Phil, Dave and Tony

News from The Deccas

without comments

We hope you survived the Christmas period and are looking to burn off those excess calories by coming along to one or more of the following gigs.

We’re at the start of what’s already looking like a fairly busy year kicking off with a live interview/studio appearance on the legendary Radio Caroline! We’ll be on Ray Copeland’s show from around 10pm on Monday 11th January playing a couple of songs live and chatting about the band. We also get the chance to do a “Desert Island Discs” and pick a track each. Go to www.radiocaroline.co.uk for listening info.

Saturday 16th January sees us return to Tommy Flynn’s on Camden High Street (nearest tube Mornington Crescent) for a drop of the black stuff and (we believe) four bands. Only a couple of quid to get in.

Friday 29th January we take a trip to the south east coast of Kent. The Deal Welfare Club and Social Institute is the venue and for just £1 (one single pound?!) you can catch us open the three band night that includes Autumn Few (formed from the ashes of the excellent Springtide Cavalry) and indie-ska quartet The Flack. We’re reliably informed that Deal/Dover area has a burgeoning live music scene so we’re expecting a full house and the bar will be reasonably priced too. Come on, first payday after christmas, let’s have it!

Saturday 30th January and if you can’t haul your asses down to Deal or, like us, fancy a second night of it we’ll be back at where we played our very first gig; Tap n Tin, Railway Street, Chatham. The Suburban Kings team always present a line up of great bands and this night will be no exception: The Deccas, Archie Wah Wah, The Lovedays and new act The Facades. There is also “secret unannounced guests”…. Entry will be around a fiver, you will not be disappointed.

That’s for starters, we have more gigs booked through to May(details will follow) so we hope to catch up with you soon.
All the best for 2010 folks!!

without comments

No Gravatar

Goodness me folks, the end is nigh and there’s only a month left til christmas but you can relax in the knowledge that The Deccas will be there for you!
We’ve already started booking in gigs for the new year but the rest of 2009 looks like this:
Monday 23rd November The Forum Tunbridge Wells supporting Towers of London
Back from the brink of musical destruction the Tourettes brothers have re-jigged their line up and paying their dues again on a ‘Back to Basics’ tour.
Tickets are available via the link http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wegottickets.com%2Fevent%2F61379&h=0b0ed3359b2cc64c6c76c7a2f848e39c
Friday 4th December Nag’s Head Rochester with The Effectives
Promoting their new four track E.P. recorded alongside Parisian band Smash, The Effectives headline this early advent knees-up at our local boozer. Bob "from The Dentists" Collins will kick the night off with a solo set and your humble narrators sandwiched inbetween.
Free entry, easy to find with great beers and staff, what more do you want to start the festive season?
Saturday 19th December Beacon Court Tavern Gillingham supporting Who’s Who
Nuff said? We think so but just in case you’ve never come across them before, Who’s Who are the greatest tribute to one of Britain’s greatest rock bands; The Who(see what they did there..). We’ve had the pleasure of warming the Beacon up for them in the past and we anticipate another blinding night this time round too. Entry is six quid.
Just a reminder here; if you haven’t already got your hands on a copy of our album "Ways To The Sun" you can get it direct from us at these gigs or email us your details and we’ll arrange a paypal payment. Alternatively you can pop into Recollect Records, North St, Strood or Magic Discs, Station Rd, Rainham or the New Arts Centre’s Nucleus Store, Dockside Outlet, Chatham and pick one up. They make idea stocking fillers, hint hint…
We do hope we’ll see you soon; we’ll be in touch again before the year is out with news of what lies in store for 2010.

We’ve been having quite a good couple of months of late having played two storming sets at Liverpool’s Cavern Club and Cavern pub as part of the week long music festival International Pop Overthrow. We went down so well they’ve guaranteed us a slot or two at next years bash. Hopefully we can suck up a little more and go stateside at some point in the year too.

This weekend saw us back in Ranscombe Studios laying down the eight songs we needed to complete our debut album! This twelve track account of our first two years together is planned for release Saturday 15th August and to mark the occasion we’ll be putting on a do at the Nag’s Head in Rochester, so stick it in your diaries and we’ll give you some more info nearer the time.

We’re having a little breather at the moment while we fine tune the album and work on the packaging etc but we will be hitting the stage again early July, kicking off with;

Saturday 4th July, The Dublin Castle, 94 Parkway, Camden Town, London NW1

Our second appearance on this hallowed stage sees us move up the running order too with a “second on the bill” position with The Hard Fox kicking the night off, Pistola Kicks after us, Old School Tie headlining then an extra “headline” slot in the form of New York act Bodyface.

Doors open 8pm, we’ll be on around 8.45pm. £6 entry or £5 with a flyer.

Friday 17th July, Beacon Court Tavern, Canterbury Street, Gillingham, Kent

The Paisley Polka Dot Picnic Party proudly presents another of it’s 60’s garage, psychedelic, fuzz beat, 70’s Northern Soul, and classic Britpop nights with DJ’s and a three band line up: The Deccas, The Bresslaws and, all the way from Paris, Smash.

Doors open/music from 8pm. Around a fiver to get in.

Saturday 18th July, Medway Aces Scooter Rally, Dunn Street, Bredhurst,

The Medway Aces Scooter Club is holding a weekend event on the grounds of Bredhurst Nurseries. Held over three days/two nights there will be live bands, Dj’d music as diverse as ska, soul, indie and house/rave, scooter custom show and parts stalls, gymkana/rideout and other assorted fun and games, all mixed in with plenty of alcohol!!

A weekend pass costs just £15 inc camping so load up yer scooters and party the weekend away in the garden of England!

Friday’s live bands are Springtide Cavalry; playing a cracking mixture of indie covers and original material and No Future; a very authentic Sex Pistols tribute act.

Saturday will see The Deccas, The Effectives (blue-eyed soul/60’s rnb) and our Parisian friends Smash do their thang.

International Pop Overthrow

without comments

No Gravatar

Saturday 22nd May, International Pop Overthrow, The Cavern, 10 Mathew Street Liverpool L2 6RE

A dream comes true!!! You may have guessed we love the whole 60’s music scene and its history so to get the opportunity to play a venue so key to the careers of those bands really is something else.

The International Pop Overthrow (or IPO, as it has affectionately become known) is a pop music festival which is held in week long stints at 13 cities in America and, for the last few years, a week in Liverpool. Each International Pop Overthrow takes over the local live music hot spots and features showcases from 25-180 of the best pop bands from around the world. The purpose of International Pop Overthrow is two-fold: one aim is to give every worthy band who’d like to play their music in a festival atmosphere the chance to do so, and the other is to bring pop music the attention it so richly deserves.

For further info on I.P.O. go to www.internationalpopoverthrow.com

We are playing two slots on the Saturday: 1:45 PM at The Cavern Pub and 8:15 PM at The Cavern Club on the back stage.  Entry is free!!!
