On March 19th 2017 at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD, 46 musicians performed 33 songs paying tribute to the wide variety of music coming out of the UK between 1967 thru 73 – a unique time in music history. Between 1964-66, the majority of British groups performed slight variations on the Beatles two guitars-bass-drums & harmonies attack. After the initial British invasion, a newfound freedom was born that allowed some of the beachhead bands to create innovative sounds and produce some of their best music. There were also one hit wonders and other genesis groups that generated entirely new genres like heavy metal, punk-rock, classical-rock, pop, bubblegum, progressive-rock, glam, folk-rock, and every kind of hybrid. Soon the confines of hit-driven AM radio opened the door for FMs’ longer songs and stream of consciousness set lists. 1967 - 73 was a renaissance era for popular music.
