The 1950's spawned a new music craze in America. It began with American youth embracing Do-Wop, leading into the socially conscious music of the 1960's, followed by English groups like "The Beatles" coming to America. Dubbed "The English Invasion," groups like "The Rolling Stones," "Herman's Hermits," "The Dave Clark Five," and "Petula Clark" climbed the music charts. Meanwhile, American bands like "The Beach Boys", "The Mamas & Papas" and "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" made their mark in the history of American Music.
Singer/Guitarist Michael Butler and his group "Stone Love" perform a mosaic of music that spans through the golden years of Rock & Roll history in America and brings back nostalgic memories of the artists who made the music famous.
