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.

LIVE @ The Bowling Green

BowlingGreenWeb

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!

Who are TheSixtySix?

SixtySix_Band1_landscape

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!

 

Next gig: Bradninch Music Festival!

We are delighted to announce that TheSixtySix will be appearing at Bradninch Music Festival on Saturday 10th June! The band will play a 40 min set at the legendary Castle Hotel from 2pm. We’ll be back up to full strength with Stevie on keys and cramming in as many of our favourite tunes as possible! The Festival runs from the 9th through to 11th June and you can check out the full listings at bradninchmusicfestival.co.uk. There will be a host of great musicians and bands performing over the weekend and we look forward to seeing you there!

Live recordings @ First & Last Inn

We had a great gig at the First & Last Inn  last Sunday – thanks to everyone who came down and made it such a fantastic night! Although we missed Stevie on keys, it was really good to be out playing and showcasing a load of new tunes.  It was also the first public performance of Rosie on saxophone – something you’ll definitely be hearing a lot more of in future. The audience was really attentive and the whole place was up and dancing by the end of our second set! 🙂  We captured some nice videos (see below) and audio (available on our Listen page) from the gig for you to check out.
