The Raiders 3 Piece Swinging 60s Band
Music of the United Kingdom developed in the 1960s into one of the leading forms of popular music in the modern world. By the early 1960s the British had developed a viable national music industry and began to produce adapted forms of American music in Beat music and British blues which would be re-exported to America by bands such as The Beatles, The Animals and The Rolling Stones.
This helped to make the dominant forms of popular music something of a shared Anglo-American creation and led to the growing distinction between pop and rock music, which began to develop into diverse and creative sub-genres that would characterise the form throughout the rest of the twentieth century.
In the late 1950s, a flourishing culture of groups began to emerge, often out of the declining skiffle scene, in major urban centres in the UK like Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and London. This was particularly true in Liverpool, where it has been estimated that there were around 350 different bands active, often playing ballrooms, concert halls and clubs. Wikipedia
