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.
They will be performing the U.S. album, Beatles'65, in its entirety. The Beatles'65 LP is unique in that it combines American musical elements of rockabilly, rock n'roll, R&B/blues and folk within its selections. In addition to the Lennon-McCartney numbers, a number of the tracks on the Beatles'65 LP were written by songwriters here in the U.S.
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.
