Heavy Sixers w/ Doug Collins and The Receptionists
Thursday April 14 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Over the last few years, Steve Dupuis (guitar in The Rakes, The Blue Mollies, Trompe Le Monde, etc…) found himself writing a bunch of songs inspired in equal parts by the insane political environment, personal stories and just plain rock & roll, Steve approached Mark Devaraj (High On Stress, The Red Flags, WRRC Mpls, etc…) to play drums, Emily Dupuis (The Blue Mollies, The Bottlehouse) to play keys and sing back up, Jon Sawyer (The Rakes, Rob Stealcheat, etc…) for bass and Grant Eull (Detroit, Manplanet, Frizzle Fry, etc…) to round up the lineup on guitar. Dupuis reluctantly decided to do the vocals himself even though he had not fronted a band in the past. Now, with a couple years of shows as a band, The Heavy Sixers are releasing our first selection of basement recordings titled, “Not in the Hostas”. Influences can be heard in varying degrees from some classic rock & roll sounds to the college rock of the 80s and 90s…
