About the DECK BOYS

We are the DECK BOYS. We are all noted veteran musicians. But when the coronavirus hit we were forced to take our guitars into quarantine and ride out the impending global Armageddon.


But one fateful day we surfaced from sequestration to join together in a secret location. A backyard deck in SW Portland known only to a few. On that day wonderful music was made. Joy was once again abundant. That was the day the DECK BOYS were born.

The DECK BOYS play homestyle acoustic folk, pop and blues. We play original music mixed with familiar and classic songs from the 60s and 70s. We are a bit unpredictable, always fun and engaging, and a great fit for a concert, showcase, or musical event for all ages.
