DECO DELIGHT
Live music from the 1920s, 30s and 40s


Deco Delight was formed by a group of Musicians from the North West to play as a Quartet, and was later joined by Gerry Clayton on Bass. It wanted to recreate the sound of music from 1920s 30s and 40s era. The band is fortunate in having accomplished musicians who have experienced all styles of music during their lifetime.
