The British Invasion describes a time in the 1960s when audiences all across America were singing and dancing to music from across the Atlantic.
It began with the arrival of The Beatles in America in February 1964, and continued for several years as British bands dominated the music scene.
Now this era has been recreated with amazing accuracy and excitement.
The musical group known as THE BRITISH INVASION covers the music from all of the English groups. From The Animals to The Zombies, it’s all here:
The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, The Dave Clark Five,
The Hollies, Herman’s Hermits, The Searchers, and more…
Everything has been faithfully reproduced to exact detail, from the music, clothing, and hairstyles, to the vintage guitars and equipment.
Including a spectacular SGT. PEPPER ERA SET!
