I have a database of events for the next 12 months.

How do I query the top 5 events based on today's date for the next 6 months?

What is the syntax for the today's date and six months from now?

I've tried this:

$query = 'SELECT TOP 5 date
                        ,startTime
                        ,endTime
                        ,title
                        ,details
                        ,room
                  FROM
                        WWW.dbo.Events
                         WHERE date BETWEEN (today) and (six months from today)
                   ORDER BY date DESC';
