The Sixteen Tonnes

The Sixteen Tonnes

 Liverpool, England, GBR

The porch stomping, soul stirring, hip shaking, infectious rock n roll fever of The Sixteen Tonnes has arrived!


Having embraced invitations from Oasis and The Zutons to support on tour at arena level, the band was swept into an intense and explosive introduction to the music industry.

After such a euphoric introduction, the Liverpool quintet chose to deflect industry advances in favour of stabilizing the foundation of a sustainable career in music. The band opted instead to satisfy creative impulses in their rehearsal studio, forging the blueprint for a debut album.

Throughout this time the band has established a responsive audience by promoting their own monthly musical event, The Company Store. This not only keeps the band at the forefront of Liverpool’s music scene, it is also used to showcase new material from a sizable catalogue of work.

Having recently completed work on their debut EP to be released early 2011, The Sixteen Tonnes were asked to support Cast on their reunion tour and were greatly received.

The Sixteen Tonnes draw influence from The Beatles, Stones, Everly's, Dylan, The Band, Hank WIlliams, Leadbelly, SFA, Wilco, Billie Holliday, Elvis, All Motown, Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons, Fred Neil, Neil Young, Grateful Dead, Velvets, Buddy Holly and many more of the truly great writers/performers to grace this industry in all genres!
