WMNF Community radio says
Britannia ruled the airwaves in 1964 and 1965. In the front ranks, marching in formation behind the Beatles, were the Dave Clark Five, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Herman's Hermits, the Searchers, the Hollies, the Animals, the Kinks, the Yardbirds, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Dusty Springfield, The Zombies, Spencer Davis Group, and Chad and Jeremy. Rock & roll, seemingly so moribund at the start of the decade, set off a fever that defied all attempts to contain it or rationalize it as a fad.

In this event we are matching some of the best local bands to mid-sixties British bands. 20 bands playing at least 60 British Invasion songs!:
