The Greatest 1960s Musical Re-Creation Show in the World
The Sixties Show is from NYC and is The Greatest 1960s Musical Re-Creation Show in the World. The band features former members of Bob Dylan’s, Ray Charles’, James Brown’s, Ray and Dave Davies’ (The Kinks) bands and current members of legendary multi-platinum pop superstars The Smithereens.
The show is a cross-generational crowd pleaser and the band is widely celebrated and known for re-creating spot-on, note-for-note re-creations of the hits, B-sides and deep album cuts from the greatest songs of the 1960s.
At a Sixties Show performance, you will take a trip back to another time and place that was the 1960s, where an AM radio is blasting out the latest sounds from a convertible, on a warm summer starlit Saturday night on any street USA. You can revisit or encounter for the first time the feeling of that unforgettable era in time that were heady days of the 1960s with The Sixties Show. You will experience the stripped-down, pulsating 2 guitars, bass, drum and vocal harmony-laden British invasion-type pop explosions up to the pivotal transition of late ‘60s orchestrated blasts of harmonious rapture. The Sixties Show, through their electrifying performances, will transport you back to the 1960s by meticulously recreating and celebrating the sights and sounds of that period.
- All of the music is performed live, with no samples, backing tracks or prerecorded music of any kind.
- The band uses a state-of-the-art sound system but only plays authentic 1960s period vintage and re-issued vintage gear and instrumentation, just like the original artists and original recordings. This combined with genuine 1960s mod costumes that the band wears only adds to the meticulous detail and authenticity of this popular and powerful theater show.
- In addition to the concert experience, the show is also powerfully dramatized by a combination of narration and ‘60s archival audio and newsreel footage. The Sixties Show is a high-energy trip back in time that reminds the audience how uniquely inspirational, entertaining, and historically significant the music of the 1960s was and continues to be.
The members of The Sixties Show were hand-picked to perform and record with Sir Paul McCartney, The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, The Bee Gees, Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen and other legends and individually have performed at the most renowned venues in the world, such as Madison Square Garden, The Hollywood Bowl, Wembley Stadium, The Grand Rex in Paris, The Budokan in Tokyo, and others.
