TheSixtySix made their way down to Plymouth last Saturday to play at the Blues Bar & Grill, down on the historic waterside. There’s a great Americana vibe in there and the jukebox playlist the venue had going was probably the best we’ve ever heard! The band went on at 10pm to an already busy venue, and the audience were fantastic; really into the music and dancing at the first opportunity. Particular highlights for us were “Foolish Woman Blues” (Janis Joplin’s slow Blues, which had the place transfixed) and the always-dance-inducing “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder.
All in all, a great night! Thanks to everyone who came to see us, and to Scott and his team for hosting. We look forward to coming back again later this year..

TheSixtySix have recently re-located to the fantastic Tazma Studios in Exeter. It’s a great space to rehearse in with excellent PA and in-house amps and drum kit.
Here’s a few song excerpts from the recording we did at the last rehearsal, including some of the newer songs in the set. Video capture from GoPro Hero 3. Audio capture using Zoom R16.
We had a fantastic time at The Bowling Green last Saturday! It was the first gig in Exeter for a while and it was great to see so many of you who came along to support us – thanks! We were too busy having a good time to take any photos during the main event, but here’s a few that we took during setting up and soundcheck. Many thanks to the kind folks at The Bowling Green for hosting us – we’re looking forward to playing again some time next year!
We had a great time playing at the Hook and Parrot Smugglers Bar in Seaton last night. Rosie was on both saxophone and guitar duties this time (and in full rock mode!). Here’s a few photos from the evening – thanks to Kim and all at Smugglers Bar for hosting us.
TheSixtySix are an energetic Blues, Rock, Funk and Soul covers band based in the Exeter area. A typical setlist ranges from the Blues classics of Robert Johnson, Freddie King and Koko Taylor to more modern interpretations of Jack White and Gary Clark Jnr and into the Soul/Funk territory of Stevie Wonder and Spanky Wilson. Fronted by vocalist/saxophonist Rosie, the line-up also includes drums, bass, electric guitar and keyboards.
“Gimme Shelter” (The Rolling Stones)
“The Seeker” (The Who)
“Glory Box” (Portishead)
The band formed in 2016 and has quickly developed a reputation for their exciting live performances. One of the younger bands on the local circuit, the group has a wealth of gigging experience and have appeared at music venues and festivals throughout the UK and beyond. TheSixtySix are passionate about bringing great blues roots music to audiences of all ages – the more dancing the better!
We had a great time at the Bradninch Music Festival last Saturday! It was a day packed full of fantastic live music, including original artists performing outside the Guildhall for Green Light Unplugged in support of Macmillan. Here’s an excerpt from our set at The Castle – thanks to everyone who came along to support us!
