Classic Rock. Bouncy Pop. 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. 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.
