Behind the Music


6035 plays a tight mix of rock classics from Led Zeppelin to Billy Joel and Journey to the Foo Fighters — songs everyone knows the words to, from groovy hippies to alternative hipsters. The band’s energy is irresistible, and it doesn’t take long to get the whole party dancing.
 
6035’s shows feature unbridled rock action created by dual guitarists Dave Turnupseed & Jason Hepner, who aren’t afraid of a little old school guitar distortion. Anthony Lopez lays a deep rhythmic bass line, joined by Rick Hilyard on drums–who flawlessly provides the weight needed to keep it all rolling. Add the astonishing versatility of Fritz Genato’s voice, which ranges from a mellow croon to the raw power of a hardcore headbanger, & the energy is irresistible.
There’s no doubt about it: music lovers love 6035!
