The Invasion celebrates the music of and inspired by the British Invasion era. We perform songs by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Yardbirds and many others.

The Invasion features four skilled, versatile musicians dedicated to performing faithful renditions of these iconic songs. Our goal is a fun-filled, enjoyable evening of incredible music delivered in a professional manner. Book The Invasion for your next event . . . a splendid time is guaranteed for all!
These guys are very talented! The songs are almost entirely British Invasion era, with maybe one or two offerings from the Yanks from the same period. One of the things that make The Invasion so exceptional is their authenticity: great musicians playing accurate renditions of classic songs including the often over-looked backing vocals and harmonies. Fun to see and hear- they dress in period dress and play period correct instruments through vintage amps. You'll know many of their classic songs by heart, and it's just a blast to hear them played so well. Very enjoyable and memorable- go hear them!
Great sound! Beautiful harmonies and their song choices are perfect!
The Invasion is a top-shelf Ready-for-Vegas band just waiiting to happen. They are that good! I can't say enough about their harmonies, their tone, their professionalism and overall presentation. All band members are fantastic and are masters within themselves....but when they play together, they create an amazing sound! Prior to performing many of the 60 classics, they first set them up with British Invasion fun facts or trivia for the audience to participate in. Whether it's trivia from the 60's, a 60's memory of one of the band members or a story on how the band found each other (awesome), each story is personal to these passionate musicians which is then displayed for the audience to see through their great musicianship and execution. What an awesome filming session on Sunday! So glad I was able to make that! That was a great day! Thanks guys!
Really enjoyed listening and watching The Invasion, especially on "Don't let me down" and "Apache"! All four members are very talented!
Good Solid Energetic Entertainment for all ages. A Must See.
Outstanding spot-on harmonies. These guys have obviously put alot of work in their act. One great hit after another!!
This group was fantastic to hear. They did an over the top performance. Every song they played topped the one prior. The audience, myself included, really enjoyed them. they were asked to return by the end of the 1st set. They play alot of 60's Beatles, Rolling Stones, 70's Eric Clapton...they hit every note perfectly!
Well worth the show.
I have hired individual members of this group to play at an open house event in Kalamazoo. I was very happy with the overall entertainment they provided for my event. The professionalism with which was presented, along with personally entertaining the crowd, was noticed by all in attendance. I still have folks talk about my event last year. These gentlemen are well seasoned entertainers, and the harmony is well versed. I would highly recommend the Invasion for any event, whether children are included or not. They are well experienced to handle any size crowd, corporate, weddings, wakes, or just private parties for any occasion. Feel free to contact me if any further information is desired.

What to Expect
We strive to take the audience back to the 60s when the British Invasion took us by storm.. You will hear the music the way it was back then. We stay as true to the original recordings as possible. We also wear straight leg jeans, Beatle boots, skinny ties, etc. to get the look right. We also fill the stage with vintage music through authentic gear such as Rickenbacker, Gretsch, Vox, Hofner, Ludwig just to name a few. If you like the 60s rock and roll you will Love us.
We provide lights and PA and can contract for events of up to 1000 people outdoors by the top of our price range. Larger performances may be negotiated. We can accommodate song requests as long as they match our show and we have ample time to prepare.
The Invasion is Detroit's premier British Invasion cover band. Bob, Ron, David and Donn were drawn together from a love of the music from the other side of the pond that came to us here in the 1960s. All 4 members of the band sing tight, well-crafted harmonies. Add to that expert instrumentation on era inspired gear, the best of the music of that magical decade and you have The Invasion's formula for a good time.
This project has been a true joy for the boys who have had a shared love for this music but have never come together just for the idea of pursuing the music of the Beatles and those who followed. Add to that the fact that each of the guys has been playing professionally for years and are now having the time of their lives with this music, and I'm sure you'll have a great time too!
The band has experience playing at festivals, clubs and parties throughout the region. Each of the guys have time on the road playing in touring ensembles. Artists that The Invasion's members have played for Nathaniel Mayer, the Drifters, Jack Earls, Jack Scott, the Starlight Drifters, the Crystals, Ronnie Dove, the Reflections, Milagro, Mixed Nuts, Steve King and the Dittlies, the London Times, Frank Allison and the Odd Sox, the Lollipop Guild, the Imperial Swing Orchestra, Dick Siegel and the Brandos, Kentucky Chrome, the Fanatics and Fallout just to name a few.
Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on ReverbNation for updates on our schedule and new recordings and goodies. We look forward to seeing you at a gig

Influences & Inspiration
Of course the Beatles are a HUGE influence in our lives . That's the band that drives this band's back beat sound. The bands to follow such as the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds have locked that Mersey Beat sound into our heads .
We are pretty much self-contained . We only need sufficent electric outlets to run our gear.
