Wake up!

Get up and party with BAND 6.

We're excited!

We're looking forward to our two upcoming gigs in August and October. This is the second time we will be appearing at the Sidewalk Cafe, the show will be short but very sweet! The Sidewalk features many different entertainment venues, from music to comedy to performance art. Come hear our set and stay on for an evening guaranteed to stimulate your senses!

Band 6 is also thrilled to be playing, once again, at Rhythms of the Night in Manville. This is one of our favorite venues. The stage is huge with lights and all so we really feel like STARS! We usually get our biggest crowd at Rhythms thanks to the locale.

Since this will be mischief night, we hope you come out to join us, in costume, of course. We'll be dressed to kill, so we expect you to come decked out as well. As an added incentive the band will give a prize to their idea of best costume (no Beatles please that would be cheating!) Pretty spooky, eh kids! Come out and join us for some great music, mischief, and dancing!

Hello fans of Band 6,
We did it! Band 6 played Karl's Klipper last night, Saturday, June 27, 2009, and if we do say so ourselves, it was a roaring success! First and foremost, the show was the debut of our new guitar player Charlie Hallowell, who wowed the crowds with his searing solos and adept rhythmic attack (and his singing on I Saw Her Standing There).
Not that the rest of us were chopped liver! Cathy was in her usual fine vocal form, Mike played slide guitar like his life depended on it, Guy did a masterful job on keys and vocals, and T-Bone and Dickie held down the rhythm section like nobody's business.
The song which we debuted last night was End Of The Line (Traveling Wilburys). Songs which we brought back after extended hiatus included The Way (Fastball), A Change Will Do You Good (Sheryl Crow), and Born On The Bayou (Creedence Clearwater Revival).
We saw many friends last night: the Long Island crowd really surprised us with their presence; Mom Reina stayed for two whole sets (anything to see her 3 sons); and even when the dining room wound down to Roni, Patty, and T-Bone's 2 long-suffering S.I. friends, we played, they danced, and it could have gone on longer! (but we was tired).
Next? Back to Karl's in the next few months; a Rockville Centre L.I. gig at a joint called Reflections; Rhythms Of The Night in Manville (a perennial favorite) in October; and quite possibly a return to the Sidewalk Cafe in Manhattan NYC!! Watch this space for updates.

IF YOU WERE THERE ON SATURDAY 6/27: post us your comments, observations, requests, wish lists, unsolicited advice, etc and so on. Even if you wasn't there, comment anyway!
