Decades Rewind is a national touring concert, dance party, and theatrical performance all wrapped up in one blockbuster show celebrating the hits of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s – America’s most prominent decades in music history. The medleys feature a wide array of legendary songs including hits by ABBA, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Tina Turner, Chubby Checker, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Prince, Bon Jovi, and many others. The “jump out and grab you show” is accompanied by three larger than life screens and visuals that instantly transport viewers to each decade with images from that time’s headlines and pop-culture.
Decades Rewind was created by the show’s keyboardist, Peter Gatti, and drummer, Mark Blinkhorn. Gatti owns and operates Studio G, a high-end studio used by many local and national artists in the Tampa, Florida area. Studio G is also the home of DecadesRewindRadio.com, an internet based radio station. Blinkhorn is a retired firefighter from the Sarasota Florida County Fire Department and now tours full time with Decades Rewind.
Gatti said, “Decades Rewind was created to transport our audiences back to the days of the best memories of their life. Guests always tell us that they remembered their first dance, their first kiss, their first love, during our shows. Music is so powerful and it’s really amazing to see how people are moved throughout our show.” When you come to a Decades Rewind show, you have to bring your dancing shoes!
Other members of the Decades Rewind band include Music Director and vocalist Al Owen, Ashley Renee (vocals), Coya Jones (vocals), Jimmy DeLisi (guitar), Frank J. Edmondson III (vocals), Lisa Larkin (vocals), Patrick McKenzie (trumpet), Calvin Jones (vocals), Monica Cox (vocals), Ryan Redden (saxophone), Jeff Stoddard (bass guitar), Jimmy Blount Jr. (trombone), choreography by Desmond Boone, Colin Gatti and Malita Smith (dressers), and the extraordinary costumes were designed by Debra Bokelbreg of the Cirque du Soleil family.

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts. www.TrustArts.org
