But please don’t let the British flag fool you, The British Legends of Rock Show are ALL BRITISH ALL THE TIME but they are NOT a British Invasion or “Beatlesque” pop band. BLOR is a unique and solid rock extravaganza and the only tribute show of its kind on the circuit. BLOR is a high-energy rock and roll rollercoaster ride taking their audiences on a fast moving musical and multimedia journey back in time spanning the undisputed two greatest decades of British rock music and culture.
The highly acclaimed accompanying multimedia production is choreographed with tremendous detail paid to period correct media and accuracy. Video follows the bands time-line of music during their performance under careful direction sharing visual interactive memories and pop-culture media with the audience from the other side of the pond, here in America, during the same time period.
Audiences of all ages find the show unique, exhilarating, educational, and unpredictable as the band moves seamlessly from 60s British rock legends like The Kinks, The Zombies, Joe Cocker, Cream, Deep Purple, The Who, and The Rolling Stones to 70s icons David Bowie, Queen, Eric Clapton, Wings, Bad Company, Elton John, Led Zeppelin and many many more…

A Little Overboard, Seize Atlantis & more.. Putnam Place, Saratoga Springs, 7pm-12am
Come join A Little Overboard for the release of their new album “Lies of Lovers.” They will be joined by Seize Atlantis, Shortwave RadioBand, Contratone and The Hard Luck Souls.
A Little Overboard is an explosive slice of alternative and indie-rock, flavored with a pinch of pop. Established in 2022, the 5-piece band that hails from Saratoga Springs NY will be celebrating the release of thier debut album “Lies Of Lovers.” Their new single “Goodbye For Now” sees the band set their stall out early and for all to see: a gorgeous piece of listening pleasure, with the lead singer’s voice playing an extremely important part in the band’s setup. Right from the opening bars, the soulful, gritty and captivating sound locks you in with its jangling guitars, emotional lyrics and a brooding melody awash with power and intensity. It sounds organic, classic and raw, and so unlike the over compressed rock recordings we are supplied with on a daily basis.
The arrangement of the layered guitars is a key piece of the puzzle throughout, growing and swelling over the record, and giving “Goodbye For Now” an immensely intoxicating feel. Whether or not you love this kind of music, you cannot dispute the absolute pulling power of this song.
