Decades Rewind in Quarantine for now
The Suncoast Post recently had the pleasure of catching up with Decade Rewind’s leader, Peter Gatti. We were excited to share exciting ventures coming up for the DR crew but, like all of us, plans have been shelved for now in favor of hunkering down in quarantine. So, how about a new Decades Rewind recipe to try while we wait? When a sense of normalcy returns, we will surely inform you of upcoming tours and exciting additions to their shows.
Remember the good times
Following Decades Rewind on social media provides viewers glimpses of the fun and amazing food they always seem to be enjoying. Peter has graciously agreed to share one of his favorite recipes from their long days on the road. Whether at campsites around the country or enjoying a great bite while enroute to the next venue, keeping it real, and delicious, is a vibe Decades Rewind likes to maintain.
Bus life can get tedious but, surrounded by great friends, supported by fans around the country, and devouring delicious food certainly makes the time sweeter. The Decades Rewind group cannot wait to get back to performing but, for now, they are enjoying time at home with their families, eating great food, and looking ahead to better days. Visit their website to see what’s coming up!
The Suncoast Post wants to know
SP: How has the “tour bus life” prepared the Decade’s Rewind crew for this current situation we are all experiencing?
PG: Well, living in a 45-foot trailer with 12 people is certainly tighter than most homes. And the food – – we prepared everything in a roasting pan or crockpot, so it was ready whenever we wanted to eat.
SP: Who is the cook when you are out on the road, and what is the crew’s favorite dish?
PG: My wife, Sandy wears many hats around DR, including bus cook. By far, the crew’s favorite dish and one they always request is the “macaroni and cheese stuffed meatloaf.” Yes, you heard it right! It’s simple and delicious. Take a look at the recipe below, you will love it.
Quarantine Food Recipe from Decades Rewind
