The Decemberists T Shirts

The The Decemberists T Shirts Collection at T Shirt Subway.

The Decemberists are an indie folk rock name originating from Portland, Oregon (US).

They formed in 2000 when frontman Colin Meloy (singer, songwriter) left his band Tarkio, moving from Montana to Portland. He met Nate Query (bass guitar, string bass) who introduced him to Jenny Conlee (piano, multi-instrumentalist) with whom he had played with in the band Calobo. Chris Funk (guitar, multi-instrumentalist) had met Meloy previously and having been such a fan of Tarkio he played on the Decemberists first two releases, officially joining after. From then they have seen members come and go but overall they have had a stable line-up.

They are famous for their encouragement for audience participation, as well as stage reenactments of historical incidents or folklore, above all sea battles.
