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 loco_lounge@yahoo.co.uk

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.

Good evening Deccas fans!!
It’s only late January and already our schedule is getting busy with nine gigs in the bag up to July.
Our first gig of the year(and first gig in two months)was Saturday gone where we headlined the regular Mod revival night “In The City” at the Fiddler’s Elbow in Camden. The organizers and crowds were well happy with our set and I’m sure we’ll be back there again.
So with a few days between to recover we’re back up town again for our next couple of appearances and February looks like this:

Tuesday 3rd at the Hope and Anchor, Upper St, Islington. A Bugbear promotions night we’ll be supporting The Bovine Wives with Ian M Hale and Clarity Peak. This is our first appearance for the Bugbear team so we’re hoping for a decent crowd to ensure a return slot. This is a legendary venue too where acts such as Madness and U2 cut their teeth. Four bands, £6 OTD

Tuesday 17th at the Rhythm Factory, Whitechapel Road, E1. No firm details arranged for this one yet but you can be sure this quality venue pulls no punches when it comes to putting on nights of live music.

Wednesday 18th at The Barge, Layfield Rd, Gillingham. Possibly feeling a little fuzzy after the previous nights gig, we’ll be mellowing it out for you by doing our entire set(and possibly a cover or two) acoustically. Grab an ale and pull up a pew and let us do the rest. A young lad by the name of Luke Jackson will be setting the mood first. Free entry too for the thrifty among you.

And into March:
Friday 6th at The Command House, Dock Road, Chatham. We’ve played here plenty of times so we know you’ll love it too. The Deccas headline with support from our good friends The Semantics and DirectionS
