The 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 swept Britain.

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.

San 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. Like its sister enclave of Greenwich Village, the city became even more of a melting pot of politics and phenomenal musical creativity,

This music is legendary and is a huge piece of world culture having a distinct sound of it's own that resonated to millions. This was the sound of a new generation, taking control as a season of discovery made it's presence felt from San Franciscoto Carnaby Street. Take a trip back in time and experience the sounds of this unique Californian phenomenon that spread the love and good times round the globe to this day. Peace, Love, Happiness and a whole lot of groovy GREAT music never go out of style!

Chicago 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 you feel good and forget all about all your troubles at least for a little while.

The Soul Of Motown - Detroit / The Motor City

During the 1960s, Motown achieved spectacular success for a small record company: 79 records in the Top Ten of the Billboard Hot 100 record chart between 1960 and 1969.
