"Sweet Peach 6"

Before you even listen to a Sweet Peach 6 song, you pretty much know what you're getting into, but then again not.
The band has a lineup of original songs, which all groove hard from the first minute until the last, but it's the list of cover songs that really give you a peak into the musical background of the group without even hearing a note.
On the group's list of covers, the first seven are some of funk and soul's heavy hitters - three songs by The Meters, two by Herbie Hancock, and a Stevie Wonder and Parliament thrown in for good measure. Original or cover, the band is always locked in tight, ushering in the head-nodding experience that all music fans crave.
The band, comprised of six music majors at the University of Southern Mississippi, call in the influences of The Meters, The RH Factor, Parliament, Pat Metheny, Duke Ellington, The Dave Matthews Band, Bob Marley and a host of others to blend a sound of jazz, funk, reggae, pop and Latin - all of which can be heard at the same time at any given moment of a song. With all of the musical influence thrown at you at one time, the band's bio contains the following line, confirming their allegiance to all things funk and soul.
"Sweet Peach 6 has the utmost dedication to pocket and the movement of hips, dig?"
- Jeff O'Rear


"...there are six University of Southern Mississippi graduates that are proving that a major in music can still be lucrative. The boys of the funky jazz collective, Sweet Peach 6 (or SP6 as they're known on the street) take a multi-cultural approach, combining latin, reggae, jazz and pop rock into a smooth brew of Duke Ellington meets Santana meets The Meters. If you like music with a beat you can dance to, this is a band worth hearing."

We are Sweet Peach 6 - six music majors(5 being jazz studies) from the University of Southern Mississippi that live and breathe music. Sweet Peach 6 is an extremely versatile group that has been educated in the art of pure groove. Being in such close proximity to New Orleans, we have been heavily influenced by the NOLA music and culture, which shows in our originals and heavy grooves. Sweet Peach 6 has the utmost dedication to pocket and the movement of hips, dig? We set out on a personal mission, six speaking as one, to capture our audience with slammin' beats from the first note to the last. Music is our passion, and above all, what we live for. We believe we are one of the most talented and diverse groups in the nation. Our violinist, Luis Gustavo Alberto, of Campinas, Brazil, just won a YouTube competition to play on the Grammy's (which his audition video is still available on YouTube), and everyone in the group is a player of this caliber.
We collaboratively have shared the stage and performed along side of acts of the utmost professional level, such as Jeff Coffin, The Wailers, Ben Harper, The Flaming Lips, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Brazilian Jazz pianist/composer, Jovino Santos Neto, Bill Caruthers, John Blackwell, and Mike Scott. We absolutely guarantee an amazing musical experience at every show and have done so at EVERY show we have ever played.
