“We’ll play for free, we’ll play if no one’s listening, we just want to play,” says SixFoxWhiskey’s drummer, Tyler Davis.
Thankfully for SixFoxWhiskey, people are listening, and it is their unique intersection of jazz, jam, funk, and rock that has propelled them into becoming one of the fastest growing bands in New England.
SixFoxWhiskey has held featured spots at major festivals like Levitate Music & Arts Festival, Rhode Island Music & Arts Festival, and Strangecreek, and they’ve performed at venues like the Stone Pony, Toad’s Place, and Brighton Music Hall. They’ve shared the stage with national touring acts like Ripe, The Magic Beans, Kitchen Dwellers, Kung Fu, and The Elovaters.
Zach Bloomstein of 37’ Productions aptly describes what makes the band stand out: “I’ve worked with a lot of bands and seen a lot of music, and these guys are doing something a little different. They’re being themselves, which is part of what makes them unique and special.” In the end, it’s feel-good music, think-hard music, get-down music, and their latest album, Naughty Air, is the manifestation of these sensations.
Their third album in four years recorded with award-winning producers Sean McLaughlin (Matchbox 20, Percy Hill, Tony Savarino) and Zach Bloomstein (Chris Robinson, Joe Perry, Chuck McDermott)at renowned Massachusetts-based 37’ Productions, Naughty Air opens with “Betty,” a funky song that highlights the band’s strong melodic writing, driven largely by the seemingly effortless vocals of Chris Ballerini. Naughty Air weaves through different vibes, ranging from jam-odysseys that highlight the virtuosity of Dan Felix on saxophone and Brad Moreno on lead guitar in “Common Ground” and “Oh Ya!” to punchy rock jams like “Crossroads” that feature super-tight rhythmic structures from Tyler Davis on drums and Tommy Yannopoulos on bass. The album is reminiscent of Steely Dan, Vulfpeck, The Dave Matthews Band, and Dopapod. Naughty Air provides a wide range of musicality and SixFoxWhiskey is excited to bring it across the US as they tour from Maine to Colorado in 2020. “Oh ya!”- it’s going to be a fun year.
