Day Six’s music could best be described as progressive rock/metal, although it includes symphonic elements, as well as pop, electro, jazz and funk influences. Founded in 1996 under the name Peanuts, the band is known as Day Six since 2002 and changed to its current line-up in 2015. Long-time musical friends and original members Robbie van Stiphout (guitars, vocals) and Daan Liebregts (drums) share a history of 20 years of making music together. Eric Smits (bass, backing vocals) joined the band in 2011, after gaining broad musical experience as a singer and bass player in Casual Silence and several other bands. Keys player Rutger Vlek is the most recent addition to the Day Six line up (2015), and has played with Orpheo and Autumn in the past, as well as being involved in various studio projects..
