"The Sixties" have been playing together as a band for over 28 years. The group consists of
some of Israel’s foremost musicians, who after years of playing with Israel’s top acts,
decided to get together and do what they liked best: play songs from the golden era of music, the Sixties.
The group’s repertoire ranges from the early "Sixties" (Elvis, Paul Anka, etc.) to the early "Seventies" (Zeppelin, Hendrix, etc.),
touching on most of the important groups from the "Sixties" on the way. The group started out as a group that
covered "Beatles" songs, but as the years went by, went on to play other groups’ music as well. The group
has played in countless venues around Israel, as well as overseas, even in Morocco! Among some of the more
famous venues are the University of Jerusalem, University of Tel Aviv, Bar Ilan University and most of
Israel's college and academic circuit. They even play Ministry of Education- sponsored shows for high schools,
which include light lectures on the importance of "Sixties" music and its influence on politics and life in general
during those years. Other venues include Kibbutzim, and of course countless television appearances, which is no
easy feat in Israel considering the fact that they sing mostly in English!!!
Their greatest achievement to date was playing support to "Deep Purple " during their tour of Israel in 1991,
after being chosen by members of the British band from many Israeli groups. The success of the
group before a capacity crowd of 35,000 at Tel Aviv’s" Yarkon Park" was exceptional.
