"The Sixties" have been playing together as a band for over 31 years. The group consists of
some of Israelís foremost musicians, who after years of playing with Israelís top acts,
decided to get together and do what they liked best: play songs from the golden era of music, the Sixties.
The groupís 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 groupsí 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 Avivís" Yarkon Park" was exceptional.
