    However, The British Invasion Tribute has way more to offer than Beatles tunes. The outfit's shows also pay homage to the entire '60s British Invasion era in a concert that meshes three shows in one.
    The first show includes songs by iconic British groups such as The Zombies, Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones, The Hollies, Herman's Hermits, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Manfred Mann and several others.
    Not just your average tribute band, the guys with The British Invasion have also shared the stage with legends including Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band, as well as The Beach Boys and more.
