Six Gun Bio

Based out of Southwest Virginia, Six Gun is a Southern/ Blues Rock band that delivers the true spirit of legendary bands Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackberry Smoke, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Tom Petty, and many more. While taking great pride in covering the songs with little to no improvisation, paying homage to the iconic bands who originally wrote, and recorded them, Six Gun is also proud of the original material that is being written, recorded, and released. In addition to performing many headlining shows, Six Gun had the honor to share the stage with members of the Rossington Collins Band, and opening shows for other artists such as Creed Fisher, Tim Montana, and more.

Performing stages all over NETN and SWVA, the band enthusiastically performs songs spanning from the southern and classic rock genres and even today's radio hits!
