The British Invasion: A Musical Revolution (Section 7101.401), through City of Calabasas Tuesdays September 1 to October 20, 10:30am to 12:30pm - Ongoing Class

In the mid-1960s, the overwhelming success of the Beatles turned musical and popular culture upside down as musical groups and acts from Great Britain monopolized the pop charts in the America as well as in the UK. The initial flurry of performers lasted roughly from 1964 to 1967, but during this brief span of years groups like the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, the Kinks, and the Moody Blues got their start. Some had already been going strong in the UK before the Beatles arrived in America but after their fateful Ed Sullivan Show appearance on February 9, 1964, the floodgates were opened. In this course, we will spend an hour examining each of the movement’s major acts, most of whom are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. (Note: The Beatles, which was the subject of a recent course, will not be covered in this class)
