Second British Invasion
The British Invasion was, quite simply,
one of the biggest turning points in popular music history.
The phenomenon involved the virtual domination of AM
radio and the record industry in the United States by
British artists, particularly the groups who had proved
adept at recycling the American rhythm and blues and
rockabilly songs of the 1950s. Liverpool became the
first hotbed of the so-called “beat boom.”
With the launch of “Merseybeat,” so named
for the estuary that runs alongside Liverpool. Rock
These charming invaders had borrowed
(often literally) American rock music and returned it—restyled
and refreshed—to a generation largely ignorant
of its historical and racial origins. In April 1966
Time magazine effectively raised the white flag with
a cover story on “London: The Swinging City.”
Peace quickly followed; by the pivotal year 1967 a proliferation
of English and American bands were equal partners in
one international rock culture.
Francisco - Summer Of Love
The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon
that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many
as 100,000 people converged in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood
of San Francisco. Although hippies also gathered in
major cities across the U.S., Canada and Europe, San
Francisco remained the epicenter of the social earthquake
that would come to be known as the Hippie Revolution.

became even more of a melting pot of politics and phenomenal

Blues - And So Much More
Chicago blues was one of the most significant
influences on modern rock music. Chuck Berry originally
signed with Chess records—one of the most significant
Chicago blues record labels. Berry met and was influenced
by Muddy Waters in Chicago and Waters suggested he audition
for Chess. Willie Dixon and other blues musicians played
on some of Berry's early records.
Although The Beatles were not significantly
influenced by Chicago blues music, later British invasion
bands and artists such as The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds,
The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, and many more were
all influenced by Chicago blues musicians such as Big
Bill Broonzy, Son House, Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters,
and Howlin' Wolf. Don't expect a night of sad songs..
This music is a true celebration of life and will make

at least for a little while.
