FOR YOUR LOVE: The 60S BRITISH ROCK INVASION Tribute Show
During the 1960s, the British made their mark on the worlds popular music market by taking on the United States with their new brand of chart topping rock and roll. While The Beatles and the Rolling Stones made an indelible mark on the new musical landscape, there were many other Brit Rock bands that also left a legacy of unforgettable and brilliant pop music. FOR YOUR LOVE: THE 60s BRITISH ROCK INVASION presents the music of legendary 60s Brit bands that in their day, ruled the world, including: The Kinks, The Animals, The Troggs, The Zombies, Dave Clark Five, The Hollies,Spencer Davis Group, Manfred Mann,The Who, Hermans Hermits, The Yardbirds, and of course, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. And also in response to audience desire, the show introduces for the first time, a tribute to the woman of the 60s brit-rock era including Dusty Springfield, Petula Clarke and Sandy Shaw.
Brother T (formerly of The Hiptones) has brought together musicians that intimately know the music of the 60s through their experiences with popular Australian bands like The Twilights, Stylus, Farenheit 451, Muskat, and The Moondogs.
"I have always been interested in songs that are written really well - i've learnt so much from them, and there are so many great songs that were written in the 60s and still stand the test of time today. And its ironic that so many British artists went on to blitz the US charts with their own take on American rock and roll!"
"We're also using the show as an opportunity to tell people a little about the artists that made the songs famous. We're using SA-based multi-media 'StageDirector' technology to coordinate a visual stunning show that has proved to be very popular. So fans get to see the original artists who wrote or performed the songs to make them hits back in the 60s as we perform the songs live on stage with performers who really know the era. In fact, some of the performers actually toured with the artists that we are paying tribute to.
FOR YOUR LOVE returns in summer, by popular demand, and will take the crowd on an unforgettable multi-media journey through the music of the 1960s when the whole western world was lookin' for love and feelin' groovy.Legendary hit songs, irresistable grooves, great harmonies and non-stop dancing. Get with the in crowd one night only. Relive the 60s and dress for the night. Best 60s dressed fans can win some great prizes.
