CELEBRATING OUR 17th YEAR !!!
STILL GOING STRONG !!!
Rock and Roll was created in the late 1950's, and it exploded in the 1960's! The soul music scene was hot on the charts with James Brown, Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, and many of the Motown groups like the Supremes, Temptations, Miracles, Marvelettes, Stevie Wonder, and Four Tops leading the way.
The surf scene soon followed led by the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, & the Surfaris with "Wipeout". Street corner sounds still filled the airwaves as well with chart toppers from Dion, the Four Seasons, Randy and the Rainbows with "Denise". and Jay and the Americans.
With the American arrival of the BEATLES in early 1964, the British Invasion was born. America could not get enough of those long haired rockers from England who covered many of the early greats like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Bo Diddley. The British rockers wrote many of their own hits as well. Top 20 charts were filled with new songs by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Dave Clark Five, Searchers, Herman's Hermits, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Kinks, Zombies and the Animals.
As a result of the British Invasion, American kids witnessing the adoration of screaming teen girls for this music and for the boys who played in the bands, all wanted to form a band and be like the Beatles. The explosion of the music scene now spread through American cities as bands formed everywhere in garages and basements. Welcome to the scene Paul Revere and the Raiders, McCoys, Shadows of Knight, Tommy James and the Shondells, The Lovin Spoonful, Creedence Clearwater Revival,The Byrds, Young Rascals, The Doors and so many others.
