British Invasion

While the American Blues found its origins in the United States, the unique sound traveled across the ocean to England were it took root and later returned as part of the highly successful British Invasion of the 1960s. Travel back in time with Alex Prizgintas and learn some of the fascinating stories behind these iconic hits. The unique sound of Alex and his amplified cello will be featured. Classically trained, he employs non-classical tools like distortion, delay, and the iconic “wah-wah” guitar pedals symbolic of 1960s Rock n’ Roll bands--all in conjunction with a looping station. Equally comfortable with intimate and stadium settings, Alex is able to craft his own wall-of-sound through his 1,000 watt amp. Accompanied with a narration that reveal some of the back stories of baroque, jazz, folk, and Rock n’ Roll classics, he immerses his audience in a journey through musical history.
