The Beatles and the British Invasion of 1964
On February 7, 1964, four young men from Liverpool arrive on a Boeing 707 at the recently renamed John F. Kennedy airport. Two days later they appear for the first time on the Ed Sullivan show and Beatlemania takes hold. In this presentation, we look at the rise of the Beatles and how they paved the way for other British bands including the Rolling Stones, Manfred Mann, Petula Clark and the Dave Clark Five. Sing-alongs strongly encouraged!
