Biography

Throughout the years, vocal groups such as the 5 Satins, the Temptations, the Ojays, recent groups like Boys II Men, Dru Hill and Jagged Edge, duos like Sam and Dave, K-Ci and Jo-Jo have established a style of performance and sound of music unprecedented among all other styles. This experience has been more recently represented by the up and coming vocal group 2V6.

2V6 (256), consists of two Anniston, Alabama young men-- Shakerian (Kerry) and Cassanova (Clifford) whose style and drive shines brightly on every person they meet. Although this group is R&B/Urban, their individual tastes in music are extremely diverse; ranging from pop to neo-soul, doo-wop to reggae, hip-hop to rock guitar riffs. They also play drums, keyboard and saxophone.Their image and music touches on every facet of our society, from the old school smooth R&B love song to the newly defined genre cRunk&B and the driving upbeat Hip Hop mix.

Listening to a 2V6 song you may not realize it but all vocals --lead, harmony, background (with few exceptions) are entirely 2V6 on the microphone. They sound like a group of 4 or more singers. They have successfully entertained audiences at music festivals, night clubs, high school pep rallies, college events, step shows and professional sporting events such as the Birmingham Steeldogs arena football and Birmingham Magicians basketball games. 2V6 is a clique that's hard to playa-hate. Even one of their live acappella renditions of the National Anthem (Star Spangled Banner) has gotten them standing ovations. 2V6 released a full self-titled album in January, 2006 featuring the single "Ride". Their well choreographed shows are ready for your next party, prom, festival or special event.
