Welcome to British Invasion Bands

British Invasion Bands is your digital time capsule, a chronicle of the years in the Sixties when artists from the U.K. dominated the pop music world.

Our Bands pages feature the histories of more than two dozen British Invasion bands, including photos, videos, biographies, timelines, and discographies.

We’ve just finished our first big makeover in many years!

Now British Invasion Bands is better than ever, featuring:

  • Updated biographies and photos (including “Where Are They Now” sections)
  • New videos featuring live performances when available
  • A brighter design that’s easier to read
  • A video wall (now featuring live concerts by British Invasion bands)
  • News about tours, recordings, life events, etc.

And more features are on the way. We hope you enjoy the new British Invasion Bands!
