SIXWIRE will headline block party to celebrate new mayor’s inauguration

SIXWIRE, a country rock band from Nashville, will be headlining a big community-wide block party in Anchorage on July 1. Instead of having a formal inaugural ball with gowns, tuxes, and expensive tickets, Mayor-elect Dave Bronson opted for an event for the people at the Delaney Park Strip.

Details are still coming together, but sources say there will be food trucks, a beer garden by Carousel Lounge, cultural performances from Anchorage’s many communities, an area for children with a bouncy house, and door prizes. So far, the sponsors are IBEW Local 1547, Jacobs, Tote Maritime, Bold Media and Communications, and Odom Corp.

The members of SIXWIRE have played in the bands for Faith Hill, Randy Travis, Dolly Parton, RICHARD MARX, DON FELDER, in the band Alabama, and Little River Band,

SIXWIRE consists of Andy Childs (lead vocals, guitar), Steve Hornbeak (Keyboards, vocals), John Howard (bass guitar), Steve Mandile (guitar, vocals), and Chuck Tilley (drums, percussion). The band’s name references the six strings on a guitar. The band recorded one album for Warner Bros. Records in 2002, and charted two singles on the Billboard country charts, including the No. 30 “Look at Me Now”. In 2007, they placed second on the talent show The Next Great American Band, and was the house band for the ABC series “Nashville.”

    However, one can easily see by the Assembly’s actions, they will fight Dave and democracy at every turn.
    Celebrate, but remain vigilant. The enemy does not sleep!
