Rock classics tribute band

6035 (sixty thirty-five) is the ultimate rock tribute band, taking pride in playing classics that sound just like the originals — from Led Zeppelin to Tom Petty, Foo Fighters to Alice in Chains. The first time you hear 6035, you won’t believe your ears. How can one band sound exactly like each and every band it covers? What’s great is that everyone knows the songs that 6035 plays, so not only is the whole crowd singing along, but the dance floor is packed from the very 1st song.

6035 is the official elevation of Colorado Springs, hometown of vocalist Fritz Genato, guitarists Vinny Luciani and David Turnupseed, drummer Rick Hilyard, and bassist Kavin Shepherd.
