deciBelle are a 5 piece covers band, based in the Southwest. The band play a variety of great music from the classic soul of Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Dusty Springfield, as well as covering newer material from the likes of Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars, Plan B & Kings of Leon. The aim is to get people on their feet dancing and we’ve never failed yet.

deciBelle were formed in 2009 from the ashes of a local covers band - Geoff Royall & Paul Mathews added Sam Blackmore’s stunning voice to Dean Marriott’s neat guitar, with Daryl Warren's excellent drumming completing the line-up. The band began gigging almost 6 years ago and they have built a loyal fan base with their fantastic live performances.

Harnessing the youth and energy of the three younger band members – Sam, Daryl & Dean - deciBelle also benefit from the wealth of musical experience of Geoff and Paul, who have played in numerous Plymouth-based bands over the past 25 years.

The band have enjoyed growing success, appearing at corporate events, weddings, charity gigs, as well as at pubs and clubs all over Devon & Cornwall. The band have their own high grade PA & lighting system, capable of handling anything from a small local pub/club to larger concert halls, and can undertake all levels of gigs, from short sets to a full evening’s entertainment, including background music. Weddings have proved to be the band’s speciality - we can organise everything from your first dance to your last, completing your special day.

deciBelle also work closely with a fantastic, local wedding photographer. If you require this service then please do not hesitate to enquire. You can view her online portfolio by clicking HERE



"Alan and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the band for playing at our wedding on the 2nd June.  You guys were fantastic - I think just about everyone danced at some point and your choice of tunes was spot on - not to mention the fact that both Sam and Jo have such amazing voices!!!  You definitely have a few more fans now - lots of people have been asking for your website address so they can find out your gig dates!!! Once again - thank you - you guys have been so professional throughout and worth every penny!"

"Dear Geoff
A belated thank you for playing at our wedding at Fowey Hall Hotel a couple of weeks ago. We and our guests had a fantastic night. The banter with the crowd was well received. The singing, music and selection of songs was perfect. You all managed to build up an excellent party atmosphere that got everyone involved. Our guests could not speak highly enough of Decibelle. We are very grateful for the band's part in making our wedding day such a great success. We hope we have the pleasure of listening to you again in the future."

"Both the band, Decibelle and the DJ Paul played a great mix of music and we received many compliments from our guests. They were all very pleasant to work with and were very obliging when dealing with our requests. They set up and removed their equipment without fuss and intrusion on our day, all completely professional from start to finish. Please pass our thanks and compliments on to them."
