Upcoming Gigs

Greetings Rock Fans!
6ix 5ive 9ine has added 2 dates to this summer’s gig lineup.

1st off is a benefit event for Danielle Lewis from Lowell. She has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and her friends, family and community have organized a benefit event. All the proceeds will go to help offset the costs of her medical treatment. Tickets will be available at the door. Follow this link for more information about Danielle. See flyer image for event details.

6ix 5ive 9ine and one other band will be playing the event. We will update with the performance times and other details as they become available to us.

Also added to the Summertime Schedule is a return to Michigan City to rock the house at Knuckleheads! We’ll be jamming there on Friday August 21st from 9pm to 1am. Can’t wait to see you all there! Rock on!

We’re playing 9pm to 1am this upcoming BLACK FRIDAY (November 28th for the retail challenged) at Knuckleheads in Michigan City. Regardless of whether you spend your Black Friday standing in lines trying to get some sweet deals, or if you spend it on the couch laughing at those that stood in lines, the correct way to spend that evening is to come out to Michigan City and party with your favorite region rock band 6ix 5ive 9ine!

Congrats to Tim and Jessica!

2014-10-24 Tim and Jess Shackled
Congrats to our newlyweds Tim and Jessica for tying the knot and then rockin’ the house!

We had a blast performing for the Ladies Rock Night on Friday at Buddy n Pal’s in Schererville. Thanks Starr and Lou for organizing such a cool event for such a great cause, and thanks to everyone who came out early to share in the pre-game wedding ceremony.

Two years ago, the band 6ix 5ive 9ine didn’t have a vocalist. We didn’t even have the name 6ix 5ive 9ine. We had 3 friends who had been jamming in a garage for a very long time, and we were in need of some catalyst to launch us forward into success.

Two years ago, Dave called Tim on the way to practice and said “I’m bringing new equipment to practice tonight.” as he so frequently did. (When you’re a musician, there can never be enough guitars / amplifiers / microphones / pedals / etc…) Little did Tim know that when the garage door rolled up, and the new equipment that Dave had mentioned turned out to be an extraordinarily talented vocalist named Jessica, that he was actually staring (jaw agape) at his future wife.

Fast forward 2 years: 6ix 5ive 9ine has not only found the catalyst that it took to bring us out of the garage and onto the stage at venues all around the region, but Tim and Jessica have found so much more than that in each other!

So congratulations to Tim and Jess! We all wish you two a lifetime of happiness! And to all you out there in rock ‘n roll land: Come out and see the newlyweds kick some ass Live at Knuckleheads in Michigan City on November 28th. (That’s Black Friday for the calendar challenged.) See you there and ROCK ON!

Rocktober Round-up

Hey Rock Fans! It’s the middle of our favorite month, ROCKTOBER! There’s lots of reasons to celebrate this month, and here’s just a few:

Anniversaries

Peavey Predator23 years ago this month, our guitarist, Dave decided he wanted to learn how to play guitar. He bought his first guitar as a birthday present to himself, and figured out how to play “Happy Birthday to Me” on one string. (Please don’t tell Warner Music!)

 

As of this month, it has been 2 years since 6ix 5ive 9ine formed and settled on a name.
