Lo-fi Alternative Pop Duo

Named for a high wattage 1970s 8-track stereo, The RA-6600 is an all-original vocal duo with piano and drums. It combines the pop melodies of Daniel Olivas and the punk abandon of Mark Medley to create "lo-fi pop bursts" not unlike AM radio of the mid-twentieth century. With a combination of catchy, well-crafted songs, stylish aesthetic, and dynamic two-man live performances, The RA-6600 have attracted public and critical acclaim.
