The Invasion is a stripped-down and energetic British-invasion tribute band specializing in British rock and roll from the 1960s and 1970s. From pre-Ed Sullivan Beatles and Dave Clark Five through the Faces and the Rolling Stones of the early seventies, the Invasion’s repertoire features all the sounds and colors of the greatest era in rock and roll. The Beatles and the Stones, naturally, as well as the Kinks, Who, Yardbirds, Zombies, Herman’s Hermits, Manfred Mann, and many more. Agile and versatile, the Invasion plays any and all venues, from quiet acoustic settings to full-blown electric dance halls. Whether it’s a vineyard or a pub, a private party or special event, the blokes are ready to rock for you and your friends.
