"These guys were so great! An amazing party band that kept everyone dancing their asses off all night. Book 'em! You won't be sorry."

Decoy band is amazing, we are so happy we chose them to play at our wedding! Natalie handled all of the logistics and made everything so easy for us. The band had everyone up and dancing and was very accommodating for all of the songs we wanted played. Even my grandma danced to every single song! Decoy band was a huge part of why our wedding was perfect. We have gotten compliments from everyone on the music. Thank you Decoy!!

Hi Natalie,
Thank you so much to you and the band for playing at our wedding this past weekend! We got so many compliments on how great and fun you guys were! You were able to provide the dancing atmosphere we always dreamed of! :)
I told Ashley today that she's in for a treat having Decoy at her upcoming wedding!
Thank you for all your help and I hope to see the band playing again soon!

Decoy was the entertainment for the Opening Reception of the Fall 2015 NABC. For those of you not familiar with the event it is one of three National Bridge (the cardgame) Tournaments hosted by ACBL each year. The average age of attendees is 65 but range from the very young to the very old. Decoy was sensational for this crowd. Their song list was as versatile as the crowd. Natalie and the guys were simply amazing and professionals all the way Their interaction with the crowd had people really moving on the dance floor. I received so many compliments on the band selection that night. If we are ever back in Reno I will definitely be looking up to see if Decoy is playing anywhere. 


Natalie, we can not thank you and the Decoy Band crew enough for rocking our Fallen Leaf Lake wedding! I've never seen so many people up and dancing together at a wedding like that. Our first dance song was absolutely perfect and we loved each and every set that you played, especially the ceremony music. We actually had people calling our cabins the next day, not to complain about the noise, but to ask your details so they could book you for their events as well!! We have had nothing but fantastic feedback from all guests and vendors. Dominic and I spent a lot of time deciding whether a band or DJ would be best, and without a doubt we both know that you guys were by far the best choice! Thank you so so much!!

Natalie! You and your band members were absolutely incredible! I have never seen a wedding where guests are dancing all night and wanting more! All the live songs were performed perfectly and can't thank you enough for learning the new songs such as "I Will Wait For You" (not sure if you heard me yell Mumford and Sons would be proud!). Also, your emcee skills are impeccable, loved all of your commentary and engagement during the evening!

We will make sure to recommend you to all of our friends and family and are happily to offer any references to potential customers if asked.




Decoy Band,

Thank you for making our guests come alive on our wedding day. Despite the power outage you still managed to make our ceremony music wonderful. We recieved nothing but great compliments about your music.

Best, Robyn and Micheal Landa

We had such an amazing experience with Decoy! Natalie was very friendly & communicative from the beginning. The group had such fun energy,accommodated our high maintenance work group and is extremely talented. All night there was someone coming up to me and telling me how impressed they were with the group. They really knew how to work the crowd and took care of us without a hitch. Very professional, very entertaining and made our whole evening successful. I would recommend them to any one in any setting!

We could not have made a better choice in picking a band.  Decoy knocked it out of the park at our wedding!!  They were prompt arriving, set up in no time and nailed every song we requested.  I was blown away by the lungs on Natalie, she has an incredible voice that makes you stop what your doing and watch her in awe.  Every song was very well rehearsed and at times you couldn’t tell it was a cover.  The amount of people dancing told us right away that the band is doing a phenomenal job, it’s impressive how Decoy can stir up so much energy from a crowd.  Not only were they professional but they were all very friendly and fun to be around.  Our friends and family still talk about how awesome the band was weeks after the wedding, the most repeated question I get is “where did you find them?"  Thank you to all the Decoy band members, we had the best wedding imaginable!


Thank You, 

 Emily and Cody Young


OMG - you guys ROCKED it and everyone loved you!!! All I wanted for my wedding was  great cocktails

and a fun band that got people dancing and you exceeded our expectations !!!!! I can not tell you how many

compliments we got about the band. Everyone was like, "where did you find the band” and “ her voice

is amazing” ! We loved you, Ryan kept saying your were even better than when we saw you at Circus

Circus! Cant wait to have you for another party! I have already recommended you to a girlfriend of mine

getting married at Tahoe ( location TBD) next summer.

Thank you again - and you will here from us again!!!!

Whitney Peele and Ryan


You guys are amazing.

We can't say enough good things about Decoy. They played our wedding and absolutely rocked the house. We got to choose an awesome playlist of covers that had the dance floor packed from the first song to the last. Absolutely fantastic performance. Decoy rocks.

Thanks Natalie,
Sylas Wright


Decoy was great they showed up to the venue with plenty of time for set up and had everything they needed. The wedding was an outside venue when the storm of all storms came through. The band was able to pack up and move to a new location and reset up. They also helped set up decorations and helped make my wedding the best experience ever. The band played a variety of music that kept our guest dancing late into the night. When it was time to shut down the guests kept offering to pay so they would keep playing. I will have them play at more events I have in the future. Thank you so much

Jason Pruett


Thanks again for helping to create a fantastic evening.  You and the rest of Decoy were everything we could ask for!

I wanted to see if you had a set list you could send us from the evening.  It seemed as though you had a plan for the flow of the night or maybe you are just really good at improvising :)

-Paul Crawford


Decoy made our wedding 10 times more fun! They really encouraged everyone to dance and were willing to learn songs for us! We couldn’t have asked for a better band.

Tiffany and John


Decoy is an awesome band that plays amazing music and puts on a great show. They played our wedding and had everyone on the dance floor all night.

We just wanted to say thank you so much! You guys were amazing at our wedding. Our guests loved you guys and just thought you were awesome and so did Matt and I. Playing our favorite songs, letting Matt sing and playing moves like Jagger just made the night so special. Can’t thank you enough!

Matt and Ashley
