Braninch Rocks Festival

IMG_3761

We had a great time playing at Bradninch Rocks Festival last weekend! Thanks to Andy and the rest of the crew who helped organise the festival, and everyone who came along on the day. The view from the stage was amazing (see above) and Chris did a fantastic job with the sound – thanks Chris! We also got the chance to perform “Morning Star” (by the awesome Philip Sayce) for the first time, which is now a firm band favourite!

It was a great line-up of artists, including: singer-songwriter Holly Morwenna; acoustic duo Fly Yeti Fly; Indie-Pop newcomers The Sun Veins; and a headline set from the incredible, dance-inducing Mammoth!

Here’s a few photos we managed to snap during setup/sound-check. Thanks to Andy Hartley for the extra photos and video. You can find more photos and videos of the whole event at the Bradninch Rocks Facebook Page.

Blues Bar Plymouth

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..

LIVE @ The Bowling Green

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!
