History of SIX
The men of SIX Branson Mo actually come from a family of ten brothers. (Their parents wanted a girl.) Each brother had a natural gift for music and creating melodies so they began singing gospel at church and performing at talent contests and community events. They quickly gained popularity and made their national television debut on the Donnie and Marie show in 1978. After that they moved to Southern California where they lived off of a steady diet of Ramen and Cheerios and performed on the streets for loose change. Finally they began to get regular gigs at local venues and continued to polish their powerhouse vocals. In 1995 the Knudsen brothers finally turned their love for music into a full time career, and now consider The Hughes Brothers Theatre their home.
Awards and Accolades
In 1990, the men of SIX won Harmony Sweepstakes and have won a host of other CASA (Contemporary A Cappella Society) awards for their music. SIX has performed with many big name performers including Diana Ross, Olivia Newton John, The Beach Boys and Rod Stewart. Their popular act has been featured on Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines since 1998 and received unparalleled ratings from passengers.
