Classic Rock. Bouncy Pop. Melodies so beloved, they’ve become anthems. Lyrics so meaningful, you quoted them in your friends’ yearbooks or recited them in your wedding vows. Guitar solos so ingrained in your memory, you can still sing along with every note.

Rewind to one cold Sunday night in February, 1964, with The Beatles’ appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Soon after that momentous and magical night, the floodgates opened for the Rolling Stones, The Zombies, Petula Clark, the Dave Clark 5, The Kinks, Herman’s Hermits, The Hollies, Dusty Springfield, The Who, the Moody Blues, The Animals, The Yardbirds, and many others. So began the second “British Invasion” of America.

But this time around, America didn’t fight the Brits. Instead, America’s youth welcomed them with open arms. This time around, their invasion was an overwhelming success! Thanks to the Brits, popular music and culture would never be the same again.

Formed in 2001, The English Channel authentically & meticulously recreates British pop, rock and prog from the mid ‘60’s to the mid ‘70‘s. Each song they play sounds “just like the record” and just like you remember it. The members of this band have a passion for this music and it shows with their energy & enthusiasm onstage.

Every song The English Channel performs sold millions of records in its day and is someone’s all-time favorite. You'll hear lush harmonies, a tight rhythm section, shreddin’ guitars, rich orchestration and some songs you never thought you’d hear a band play live.  People of all ages leave an English Channel performance happy and wanting more.

It may be hard to sit still when you listen to The English Channel. You’ll wanna dance. But mostly you’ll wanna sing along, even to the guitar solos....and that’s okay!

Tune in to The English Channel. They’ll take you back to where you once belonged.
