Burke, VA 22015
The Sixth Generation, LLC, Burke — The Sixth Generation plays classic pop rock from the 1960s as well as original songs written in the 1960s style.  Our shows are very appealing to baby boomers as well as Gen Xers, and we have never failed to deliver a very crowd-pleasing performance.   Our music takes people back to pleasant thoughts and experiences of their younger years.  In some venues, we even start our show with our own DJ doing a 15 or 30 minute radio-like program as a crowd warm-up, complete with original hits from the 1960s as well as memorable radio commercials of the time.  When our DJ announces us, and we come on stage, we come on strong to get the crowd revved-up, and we continue to deliver song after song that everyone loves.

Bringing back great memories playing top hits of the 1960s, The Sixth Generation captivates audiences with good music and high-energy performances. Fans are as excited now to see and hear them as they were forty years ago, and the band even has a surprising following among Generation X. The Sixth Generation produces good shows not only because the members are all very good musicians, but also because they have been good friends since the 1960s when they first started performing together. Their long friendship adds a dimension to their performances that is unparalleled among bands of their genre. In fact, fans often describe their performances as magical.

The Sixth Generation was formed in 1966 in Niles, Michigan and quickly became a favorite of many fans across the upper Midwest. In 1967, the band recorded their first original song, which was written by band members Fred Bachman and Ron Hamrick. “This Is The Time” became an instant hit on radio stations from Chicago to Pittsburgh. Since then, Bachman, Hamrick and other members of the band have written many other original songs, with several becoming regular elements of their playlist.

The Sixth Generation has performed to capacity crowds at numerous venues, sometimes sharing the stage with other popular groups such as The Buckinghams, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, The Kingsmen, The Box Tops and many more. They never fail to delight audiences when they perform. Their versatility allows them to perform a wide variety of 1960s hits made famous by groups such as The Beatles, Chicago, The Temptations, The Rolling Stones, The Rascals, Cream, Steppenwolf, The Association, The Turtles, The Kinks, Gerry & the Pacemakers, The Spencer Davis Group, Wilson Pickett and others. Their performances are enhanced with original songs written in the 1960s style.

The band's sound is nothing short of awesome. With six vocalists, their harmonies are amazing and rich instrumentation includes two guitars, bass guitar, drums and two keyboards, with one providing brass, strings and other orchestral accompaniments. Recently, the band was honored by being nominated for induction into Michigan Rock and Roll Legends.
