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!

 

Bradninch Music Festival

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!

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.

Surprise gig at The Bicton Inn

Rosie, Niall and Matt made a surprise appearance as 3 / 5ths of TheSixtySix last Saturday at The Bicton Inn in Exmouth. The trio joined the multi-talented (and good friend of the band) Pete Falloon who is currently gigging throughout the South West in support of his excellent debut album Reed In The River. It was a great night of music with a wonderfully attentive and enthusiastic audience – we’re looking forward to arranging another gig for TheSixtySix there soon. Here’s the semi-acoustic version they played of “Gimme Shelter” by The Rolling Stones, which remains a firm band favourite!
