Hidden Deep in the Green
Consisting of piano, saxophone, bass, and drums, Minus Six is an energetic pop-rock group drawing influences from artists like Ben Folds, Maroon 5, and Elton John. Formed in 2003, the band includes Kevin Carton (Piano and Lead Vocals), Kameron Rummans (Bass and Vocals), Matt Sivertsen (Saxophones), and Rob Baner (Drums). The group created the energy of a rock band without the six strings of a guitar, thus leading to the name Minus Six. Over the past three years the group has been writing and arranging original compositions and performing at Midwestern venues. Minus Six released their debut album, entitled Overdue, in June of 2004. They recorded their second album, Some Things Change, on Music Row, in Nashville, TN., which was released in August of 2005. The group returned to Nashville in August of 2006 to record their third album, which is expected to be released in early 2007. All four band members are Illinois Quad City natives - Kevin, Matt, and Rob are all from Moline. Kameron is from Rock Island. Minus Six is a rock / pop orientated group that draws influences from many styles. They fill their concerts with a variety of originals and also use their unique style and contagious energy in performing hits from the present and the past. A Minus Six concert is an experience for young and old alike.
