Biography

Hailing from the San Francisco bay area, Tha Baysix delivers a head-knockin and soulful blend of Hip-Hop, Funk and R&B the way only a live band can. Having formed in the spring of 2006, the sextet has been playing in and around San Francisco, including having played such clubs as The Poleng Lounge, B.O.C.A, The Purple Onion, and the Elbo Room. The band recorded a demo in March and are now hard at work in the studio recording their first full length CD. With thought provoking lyrics, harmonized horn sections, ruckus party music, and chilled out Cali-grooves, this band has a sound that truly represents the diversity of the bay area. Tha Baysix has shared the stage with such local artists as D.J. Platurn, Teeko and 4-one-phonics just to name a few.
