“dec8de” to headline 2016 Frontier Days
Friday June 3rd at 7pm on the Fort Dodge Ford Stage


dec8de (pronounced: decade) is one of the Chicago area’s premier cover bands, paying homage to the first wave of alternative music: classic hits featured on all your favorite John Hughes movie soundtracks, MTV’s 120 Minutes & Post Modern shows, CMJ/NME music magazines and Sirius/XM radio’s popular 1st Wave channel.

Delivering an enthusiastic and energetic show, dec8de draws their material from synth-based and guitar-driven bands that helped define the genres known as ‘New-Wave’, ‘Alternative’, ‘College Rock’, ‘Post Modern’, and ‘Brit-Pop’ music.

Members of dec8de have performed on stages throughout Chicago and surrounding suburbs, including Cubby Bear, Metro, Reggie’s, Schuba’s, Durty Nellie’s, Penny Road Pub, Double Door, and House of Blues, as well as across the Midwest.

Playing a wide variety of songs from one-hit-wonders and now iconic 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, they deliver the Classic Alternative experience.
