DEDICATED to the Memory of
The 60 Grit Band has been transcending genres and expectations throughout Southern California and beyond since 2011. Breaking the boundaries of traditional rock and blues, the band draws a heavy influence from many different styles of music including classic and modern rock, rhythm and blues, old time soul, American roots, funk, reggae and more. The band plays all types of venues, from small clubs to major festivals. Some of the stages the band has played include the Doheny Blues Festival, the Kern River Rock n Blues Fest, the Las Vegas Throwdown Festival, several ski resorts, famous breweries, County fairgrounds, and many other venues, special events and private parties. The 60 Grit Band's debut, self-titled album is unique, energetic, and has a fresh, soulful sound that is appreciated by audiences of all ages... and one that you can just let play from front to back. The album is available on iTunes as well as all the major online music retailers.
..."Lonely Whiskey Blues” – Sometimes, lovers who are fed up with playing second fiddle to a usurper named Al Cohol issue their partners an ultimatum. The narrator of this ditty has just received one: “My woman took my bottle. She tried to make me choose. For me there was no question man, I had to cut her loose. I stay home; I get drunk; I sing the Lonely Whiskey Blues.” Everything about this song is at its optimal strength, going down smooth, like a double Jack Daniel’s on the rocks...”

"This band is made up of [four] professionals playing a fresh sound with old school rhythm and blues and genuine soul. David Ferguson is the powerful lead vocalist, and plays the rhythm guitar well. Frank Orecchio plays a great lead guitar with smooth skills, swagger and a developed sense of spirit, ready for the big time. Brian Haringa playing a hard rhythm bass guitar, was blazing away. Nick Coffey on drums played stellar rhythm with great management and percussion performances. This was a very cool experience to hear and watch. It was fun to see a local band doing well enough to open for Aaron Neville, The Edgar Winter Group, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. I wish them all the breaks in the world, and do good by your music making the world a more positive and better place to live. Their sound was great, and I hope to catch this group again as soon as I can." (On 60 Grit Band's performance at the 2016 Doheny Blues Festival)
