Live Music by Purple Isn’t Six!
Join us at Alexandria Earth Day for a live performance by the local
band Purple Isn’t Six
The five man band out of Alexandria, Virginia, though mostly teens-the
oldest is 20-has been collaborating and performing together since 2011.
Manager, Daniel Beard, performs most of the vocals for the group while backed
by fellow guitarist George Rhodes, bassist Nick Fernandez, drummer Johnathan
Ibarra, and Emmanuel Barfield on the keyboard. This energetic group performs a
combination set of classic rock covers and original work. Influenced heavily by
Green Day, the Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, the Black Keys, Queen, and the
Rolling Stones these guys produce a sound that resonates with fans of all ages.
Since meeting in high school, the bandmates have performed a number of local
gigs and charity shows. On New Year’s Eve the band rang in 2015 by taking stage
in a battle of the bands at Alexandria’s First Night Celebration where they
were an instant favorite with listeners and judges alike. Most recently, they
were seen performing in support of the “Rock against Hunger” in Alexandria and
at Herndon’s Mellow Mushroom.
