BRING A TASTE OF THE WEST COAST
TO THE BOOM BOOM CLUB
The magnificent BYRDZ bring the very best of the Byrds and
Roger McGuin to the Boom Boom Club.
The Byrdz recreate the best of the chiming twelve string Rickenbacker sound of Roger McGuin & the Byrds, complete with dazzling vocal harmonies and melodic bass lines. The Byrdz recreate the jingle jangle, post psychedelic west coast feel of the Byrds, that made them so unique and one of the most influential bands of all time. The Byrds started off being heavily influenced by The Beatles, and within 6 months were influencing them!
Expect such timeless classics as “My Tambourine Man”, “Turn, Turn, Turn”, Eight Miles High”, “Do You Wana Be A Rock & Roll Star”, “All I Really Want To Do”, “Mr Spaceman”, "The Ballad of Easy Rider” & “It’s All Over Now baby Blue” etc...
Grab a slice of the best of the 60's with The Byrdz!
The Byrds started in LA in 1964 and signed with CBS in 1965.
Bridging the gap between the socially and spiritually conscious folk music of Bob Dylan and the fresh sounding hybrid pop of The Beatles. The band soon became one of the most important and influential bands of the 1960s. Throughout their career, they helped forge such subgenres as folk rock, space rock, raga rock, psychedelic rock, jangle pop, and – on their 1968 album Sweetheart of the Rodeo – country rock. They finally split up in 1973. Some of their trademark songs include pop covers of Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man" and Pete Seeger’s "Turn! Turn! Turn!", and the originals "I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better", and "Eight Miles High".
They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked them #45 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
