Review: Decadia pays tribute to ‘Grease’ and ‘Dirty Dancing’ at Mulcahy’s (Includes first-hand account)

They kicked off their set with “Grease Is The Word,” and it was instantly followed by their infectious duet “Summer Nights.” Their show featured two dancers that took on the roles of Danny Zuko (played by John Travolta) and Sandy Olsson (played in the film by Olivia Newton-John).

Other stand-out Grease numbers included “Hopelessly Devoted to You” and “You’re the One that I Want.” They also tackled some impressive classics from Dirty Dancing such as “Hungry Eyes” and the classic duet “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

Equally fun was their marvelous rendition of “Shallow” from A Star is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Of course, no Decadia set is complete without Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer,” AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long” and a powerhouse version of Queen’s “Under Pressure.”

The Verdict

Overall, Decadia was superb as they paid homage to such blockbusters as Grease and Dirty Dancing. Pete and Genessa were absolutely incredible, and the same holds true for all band members of Decadia. They proved that their recent nominations for “Best of Long Island” were indeed based on talent and merit.
