Four of the five band members call Fernandina Beach home while the lead singer is from Jacksonville. The band stays booked a year in advance and can usually be found every Friday and Saturday nights at the Ritz Carlton here on Amelia Island.
Band members are Skip Towne, lead vocalist and acoustic guitar; James Geiger on keyboards and vocals; Vic Deacon on lead guitar and vocals.; Ray Hetchka on bass guitar and vocals; and Robert Severance on drums and vocals.
You can always remember hearing a song for the first time… a smell in the air or that special someone. Music plays such a key role in triggering our memories or making new ones. For Sounds on Centre, The Decades Band wants to take you, the listeners, on a musical time warp to reminisce and enjoy. So buckle up! This journey is about to begin!
