ABOUT: Imagine some of the biggest legends in music history performing together in concert – Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Amy Winehouse, among others. The Six String Society’s 27 Club illuminates the lives and music of this infamous group of musicians, in which all the members died tragically at the age of 27.
For one day only, these stars are brought to life by talented local musicians. The all-star cast includes Whitney Shay as Amy Winehouse, Lauren Leigh Martin as Janis Joplin, Anthony Cullins as Jimi Hendrix, Austin David as Kurt Cobain, Blake Dean as Jim Morrison, Robin Henkel performing the music of Robert Johnson, Jody Bagley, Laura Chavez and others.
Set in a mythical Greenwich Village apartment circa 1969, the candles burn late into the evening as the stars of this dubious club begin to arrive in the “Living Room.” One by one, they each perform their songs culminating in one triumphant group number together at the end. Part theater, part concert, Six String Society’s 27 Club will have audiences traveling across time to rock out to some of the greatest songs in music history.

About Six String Society –Having debuted in June of 2014, the Six String Society is a unique music theater production company that celebrates both theater and music in this one-of-a-kind production. Each show’s theme is unique while mixing theater and multimedia with some of the greatest performers in Southern California and beyond.
Every show is tied together by a storyline which the rotating cast unravels as the evening unfolds. Musical genres have included blues, jazz, country, gypsy jazz, bluegrass, rock and roll, soul, gospel, and zydeco. The size of the casts range between 12 to 25 musicians depending on the theme of the show. The eight most popular versions are the Celestial Sirens, the Piano Project, the 27 Club, Back to Paris, Sounds of the Big Easy, I Believe, Take a Trip to the Tiki Hut, and our Gospel Revival production.
In just a little over seven years, this San Diego-based production company has taken to the road, performing throughout Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada. The show has headlined at the historic Belly Up 12 times since early 2015. In June of 2021, Six Strings Society performed several times in Sedona after a 16-month respite. On October 22, 2023, Six Strings Society hosted their 7th cruise with the HalloGras company down on Mission Bay in San Diego.
