A guitarless band may seem strange at first, but the piano, bass, drums, and sax group, Minus Six, have proven they can derive an impressive rock sound despite not having a guitar, thus leading to the band’s name “Minus Six”. The band was formed in May 2003 by Kevin Carton (piano and lead vocals), Kameron Rummans (bass guitar and vocals), Matt Sivertsen (saxophones), and now with the addition of Rob Baner (drums), in October 2005.
Over the past 3 years the group has been writing and rehearsing original compositions and performing at local venues in Illinois and Iowa. Minus Six released their debut CD in June of 2004 entitled “Overdue”. They recorded their second CD, “Some Things Change”, on Music Row, in Nashville, TN., in April 2005 which was released in August of 2005. Their newest CD is called "Hidden Deep in the Green" and was released in 2007.
All four band members are Illinois Quad City natives - Kevin, Matt, and Rob are all from Moline, and Kameron is from Rock Island.
Minus Six is a rock / pop orientated group that draws influences from many styles. Their concerts are filled with a diverse mix of catchy originals as well as using their unique style and contagious energy to play hits from the present and the past.
