The Bristols are from Baltimore and focus on playing British Invasion music from the 60's. The group tries to maintain a harder musical edge in their sound.
The Bristols will be performing songs from groups that were broadcasted live or had recorded their sessions on the BBC Radio Shows in the 60's. The Bristols' set is entitled "British Beat on the BBC". This set includes songs from The Hollies, The Zombies, The Animals, The Yardbirds, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bee Gees.
The Bristols have performed at Abbey Road on the River in both Washington D.C. and Louisville. The Bristols also perform locally as The Acoustic Bristols in smaller venues.
