The 60's Summer of Love

 
We all remember the sixties…

A time of conflict and of coming of age. A time of youth and of love, of peace and of innocence, and of the wild and wonderful music that set the background for our lives and for the generations who followed.

The amazing vocals of the early California Beach Boys made us all dream of warm sand, fast cars and hitting the surf. Then there was the British invasion that began with the Beatles in early 1964 with “I want to hold your hand” had us all growing our hair and rushing out to by miniskirts and go-go boots as many other English groups continued to rock the music scene.

The hippies of San Francisco Haight-Ashbury days spoke to the world of peace, happiness, flowers free love while thousands of similar free spirits on the East Coast gathered together in a little town they called Woodstock. The Motown sound rocked Detroit and Music was indeed the king that united a nation. There has never been any question that music was at it’s best from 1963 to 1969.

The music of the 60's holds a special memory for those who grew up with it. It was music you could sing along with, music you could dance to, music you fell in love with. Now, one group brings all the memorable music from the 60’s together for you in one great show!
