The British Invasion Years Tribute in Woodbridge, NJ

The Beatles took the first step by swinging the door open and turning the music world on its ear. As a result, American fans began to thirst for more British music. England answered the call by sending their very best – all of whom were eager to fill the Fab Four’s shoes. The first wave of British Invasion

music was instantly embraced because it was so eclectic…the bad boy soul of the Rolling Stones, the defiant anthems of The Who, the raw and powerful guitar sounds of The Kinks, the flower power grooves of The Zombies, and the uplifting pop of Herman’s Hermits.
THE AMERICAN MUSICAL “RESPONSE” FOLLOWS, WITH MEMORABLE HITS BY CELEBRATED ARTISTS.
Almost immediately, ‘60s American bands were energized by what was happening “across the pond” and responded with plenty eclectic sounds of their own: groups like The Beach Boys made you long to surf the waves, The Monkees made believers out of us and their TV show antics made us all laugh, The Doors hypnotized fans with their unmistakable organ sound, and Steppenwolf drove us “wild” with their classic rock edge. From the initial volley to the Summer of Love, and right up to Woodstock, it was arguably the most fertile time in American music.
