The Sixties Show from NYC has been described as "The Greatest 1960's Musical Re-Creation Show in the World." The show features former band members for Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, James Brown, and The Kinks and current members of legendary multi-platinum pop superstars The Smithereens. The members of The Sixties Show were also 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 renown venues in the world such a Madison Square Garden, The Hollywood Bowl, Wembley Stadium, The Grand Rex in Paris, The Budokan in Tokyo and others.
The show is a cross generational crowd pleaser and the band is widely celebrated and known for spot on, note for note recreations of the hits, B-sides and deep album cuts from the greatest songs of the 1960's.
The Sixties Show will take a trip back to another time and place that was the 1960's, where an AM radio is blasting out the latest sounds from a convertible, on a warm fall starlit Saturday night on any street USA. The music gives you an encounter of that unforgettable era in time that were heady days of the 1960's with The Sixties Show. The music is stripped-down to pulsating 2 guitars, bass, drum and vocal harmony laden British invasion type pop explosions up to the pivotal transition of late 60's orchestrated blasts of harmonious rapture. The electrifying performances transports the audience back to the 1960's 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. The band uses a state of the art sound system and only plays authentic 1960's period vintage and reissue vintage gear and instrumentation just like original artist's and original recordings. This combined with genuine 1960's mod costumes that the band wears only add 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 60's 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 1960's was and continues to be.
