Type: Tribute Show
The British Invasion Show has been designed as a nostalgia trip back to the greatest British music of the 1960’s.
The show features music from a wide variety of performers; The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Hollies, The Kinks, The Bee Gees, Manfred Mann, The Searchers, The Dave Clark Five, The Fortunes, The Spencer Davis Group, Billy J Kramer, Donovan, Gerry and The Pacemakers and many more.
The British Invasion band comprises five highly experienced musicians who all sing to re-create those marvellous harmonies which dominated the era. We provide stage props, lighting, themed dress and a state of the art digital sound system to deliver crystal clear sound at an acceptable volume…. the total package.
The show uses sound bites from radio and television shows of the time to set the scene of the sixties and put the audience ‘in the era’. Then the band starts the music with the hit which opened up the USA to British bands for the first time in history: The Beatles, I Wanna Hold Your Hand. From there, it is a journey through some of the most popular hits of the time, an evening of energetic entertainment and audience involvement.
The show is designed for a concert environment where the audience sits and listens, but with the catchy, up-beat songs we present, people want to sing along and they will not be in their seats for long.
