Millennials captivate us with precision performance and instrumental dexterity that would never have been attempted by pop musicians of old.

Unforgettable 90’s songs from one hit wonders like ’Moving on Up’ and ‘What is Love’ to the 2000’s that gave us Idols like Kelly Clarkson. Living legends like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry giving us popular hits of today that are guaranteed to get you up and out of your seat. Best of the Decades is a time machine of amazing music that will never fade away!
