Rock historian Vincent Bruno will focus on the rise of the British pop and rock acts that invaded American shores in the 1960’s. From pop groups (The Beatles, The Animals, The Dave Clark 5, The Kinks) to the psychedelic and progressive bands (The Who, Pink Floyd, Cream, Traffic), Mr. Bruno will explore highlights from landmark recordings that clearly defined this British pop renaissance era. The two-hour presentation, which includes audio-clips and slides, will also include aspects of British popular culture (cinema, fashion, TV, and UK underground) whose influence added to this remarkable period. Mr. Bruno will present a second program, “The Sixties: The American Pop/Rock Era,” on February 23, also at the Cranford Community Center at 7:00 p.m. Vincent Bruno is a rock historian with a focus on The Beatles and the Sixties. In addition to his work as a rock historian, Mr. Bruno has taught in a number of settings for more than 35 years, including stints at LaGuardia Community College, Empire State College, and Union County College. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library. Admission is free and all are welcome.
