Our sound comes from a collective respect for acoustic and electric music.  As a family, we rely on instinct to meld vocals into harmonies and let them take the spotlight.  We are deep-rooted in Southern musical heritage & our original music aspires to move you physically and spiritually.  Our mission is to give love through our music and we believe that music is, and always will be, a force to compel change.

We have played many festivals throughout our region and state including the Great Southern Music Festival, Bear Creek, Suwannee Springfest, The Tallahassee Museum’s Annual Swamp Stomp, MusicFest (benefiting the Refuge House), Twangdango, Southern Music Rising, Stringbreak Music Festival, Gamble Rogers Music Festival, Sarasota Folk Festival, and the legendary Florida Folk Festival.  We have also played back up band to local artists such as Grant Peeples and Brian Bowen; and have each contributed as recording artists on numerous releases over the years including Grant Peeples’ Pawnshop (2009), Brian Bowen’s There Goes the Neighborhood (2010) and Dan Newman’s 2011 release More Myth Than Man, to name a few.

We have released multiple recordings on our label Ping Records, such as I Try to Sing Along (2010), the full-length record Superhighway (2011)Demolition Man EP (2013), and our second full-length record In the Light (2014).  In addition, Ping Records has releases by other local artists like Belmont and Jones, Belle and the Band and Dan Newman.

The New 76ers strip our music down to its purest form which makes it timeless, relevant and accessible to everyone.  Listen with an open heart and hear real music played by real people.
