About The 19Sixties
We are a Sixties covers band - lots of Beatles, Rolling Stones, Who, Searchers, Beach Boys, and great song after great song from that decade. Also we play the rock'n'roll music from the Fifties which had such a big influence on Sixties music - Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, The Everlys, Elvis... Our aim is to have the room joining in with us - singing and dancing. We sing harmony well and tend to go for uptempo songs (though we can do quieter numbers while the food is going down). We also have a bit of guitar fire-power to really rock the house! One of the things we are happy to do is play your song requests. If you give us some notice we will be able to learn a song or two of your choice. This may be something for a special occasion - It Had To Be You for a first dance at a wedding recently, Bobby's Girl for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, or just a particular favourite. We have played all sorts of things - Tiger Feet, Get It On, Midnight Rambler, Rocking in the Free World, I Wanna Be Like You, even some Abba once (not recommended - luckily only a few people got to experience that shocking low point in musical history :-) We also enjoy having you join us in a big number at the end to really cap off the evening. If you can sing or play a bit of guitar we'll work something out with you - as above, just give us a bit of notice (see in our photos a couple of guests up singing and playing) Please get in touch if we could help out with your occasion! Cheers Russ The 19Sixties
Hi Russ, We had a great party for our 50th Wedding Anniversary, without doubt your band was magnificent. Everyone commented on the great music and choice of songs. With so many people getting up to dance and swing the evening away, is testament in itself. Many guest at our celebration said they would recommend 19Sixties to anyone. You were really great and added the final touches to a fantastic evening. Good luck for the future. When we or our friends have another celebration 19Sixties will be top of our list. Kind regards and many thanks,
Hi Russ Thank you so much for making my 50th birthday party a most memorable one. The 19Sixties are a fantastic & excellent value for money band, which all my guests thoroughly enjoyed. I hope you carry on gigging for many years to come, and you never know......my 60th is coming up!!
Thank you so much for an amazing night! Everyone really enjoyed it and loads of compliments about you! I will get some photos over soon. Thank you again for an absolutely fantastic night! x
We all had a brilliant night (as you may have seen???) most of the staff said it was one of the best Christmas party's we had had!! As this was the case and I know it is a very time away but if at all possible we would like to book you all for our next Christmas Party?
Hi Russell Well, what a great evening last Saturday. A huge thank you to you all for providing a truly exciting show at Birlingham Village Hall. The phone calls, cards and letters haven't stopped and all mention the 19Sixties band. You made the whole evening go with such a swing and had everyone dancing. It was such a memorable event, I suspect you will be travelling in this direction again in the not too distant future.
The 19Sixties played at our wedding in 2010 and were the best decision we made. Their lively beats and lovely renditions of old classics hit the spot, filled the dance floor, and more importantly, kept people dancing all night long! All our friends enjoyed themselves immensely! They were very professional and we cannot recommend them highly enough.
The 19Sixties played some classic songs in the perfect way.... vibrant guitar, great vocals and good rhythm. They clearly love the songs they play and this comes over in an enthusiastic and energetically performed set! The Beatles are no longer, but this goes a little way to make up for it! :-)
Hi Russell, I thought you and your band were excellent. You played my favourite music and were all very professional. Great atmosphere and had everyone up dancing, well done! X
We booked The 19sixties for our wedding at Priston Mill near Bath in August 2016. As a musician myself, technically these boys were faultless. Unlike other cover bands, they perfectly replicate the songs of the 50's & 60's. Everybody at the wedding thought they were amazing. They are a great bunch of guys, very professional and accommodating... nothing is too much trouble. If I ever need another band for a function, it will be the 19sixties.
