Friday, February 7, 1964 began the renaissance of ‘rock ‘n’ roll music in America as the Beatles landed at the JFK airport in New York City and became the vanguard of the British Invasion. The Timmons Brothers will analyze and review the contemporary reports of 1964  and the skepticism that surrounded the possibility of success for British artists in the United States. Such questions as timing, the music landscape and the type of artist before 1964 will be addressed and why 1964r may be the benchmark year in rock’s history.
