The Story Of SixGun

SixGun is what you get when you take equal parts Johnny Cash and Johnny Rotten and add a dash of Mike Ness.

Origins

In southern California circa 2004, the rockabilly scene was at a fever pitch. Bands were popping up left and right. Pompadours and doghouse basses were standard. SixGun came with a straight ahead approach and a bit more edge than most. A bit more punk than greaser, but a prominent place in the scene nonetheless. After a year of local shows, we hit the road. We toured the western third of the US for about a year and a half, and built a really strong fanbase via Myspace. Yeah, it’s been a while. Back then, we had some radio play, played with The Misfits, The Violent Femmes, Dead Kennedy’s, and a ton of other bands. Obviously, those days are gone, and we’re not in southern California anymore. Recently, the catalog of music has been revived, and a new roster of supporting members have been recruited to get out and play this stuff live again. Now, we’re heading into 2019, planning on re-recording and finishing the previous second album, and then writing a ton of new shit.

The live shows are where it’s at.

Rock and Roll is fun to listen to, but it’s even more fun to watch. Come see us play.
