*Sixtyniners excist from artist Claudia Hek on drums and cartoonist Michiel Hoving on guitar and vocals, together thay make deliscious trashy garage rock n'roll.
*Dutch kids Sixtyniners play at the smallest outdoor stage in the world, dressed to kill, they give us pure rockabilly sound with a raw blues punk twist, making us realise that the best party ever would involve Gogolbordello, a Jacuzzi and the Sixtyniners.
*When two underground stars of graphic art roch together they add colour instead of white stripes, like Skynyrd in a squatted basement.
*this duo from Amsterdam and Groningen brings you a mix of raw americana and stompin'hillbilly straight from the BBQ of a north Carolina trailerpark

Although they sound and sometimes even look like it, country, punk and hillbilly duo SIXTYNINERS do not come from some white trash trailerpark in the deep South of the US. SIXTYNINERS are a Amsterdam/Groningen based duo from the Netherlands lifting their local music scene high above sea level. Consisting of Miss Claudia Hek on drums and Sir Michiel Hoving on guitar and vocals, the band has mixed americana, garage, country and southern rock into one tasty blend too tempting to resist.
Playing small shows, big festivals, at parties, weddings and tattooconventions all over Europe, they shared the stage with Dead Moon, Peter Pan Speedrock, the Seatsniffers, T-99, the Bluegrass Boogiemen, Patti Smith, T-Model Ford, Dale Watson and White Cowbell Oklahoma – just to name a few. Whatever venue they went, they turned it into a party hall, combining catchy tunes with a subtle dose of underground sleaze and mixing good fun with pure energy. Thus earning themselves a solid reputation of must see live band over the years.
Releasing two records now close to the collectors' item status, SIXTYNINERS have signed up with Voodoo Rhythm label to make their long deserved big break with their third, called Too drunk to truck. Inviting friends and guest musicians like René van Barneveldt (Urban Dance Squad), Arno Bakker (Jammah Tammeah), Arnold Lasseur and Bart van Strien (Bluegrass Boogiemen), Bone (Pedro Delgados) Cyril Yeterian (Mama Rosin), Paul Carriere (The Beavers) and Ferd Lionel Moyse IV (The Hackensaw Boys) to join the party, Too drunk to truck has turned into their most convincing album so far. Steel guitars, banjos, mandolines, violins, harmonicas, organs, trumpets, souzafones and trombones were all brought in to make this record rock and swing like you haven't heard in a long time.
SIXTYNINERS will relase their third album in Amsterdam on June 12 in Amsterdam and will soon be playing a stage near you.
