The Nikbeats Set To Invade Downtown Pekin at Friday Night Family Fest, Sept. 12th.

In 1964 the British invaded America. This is the music of The NikBeats, an American answer to the British beat that changed the world forever. They are built from the remains of iconic Midwest bands like Kool Ray & the Polaroidz and Ready, Steady, Go! With a set list that includes timeless tunes by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Who, The NikBeats recapture everything that was great about that era of music. These are the songs that defined a generation! You'll listen, you'll enjoy, you'll sing along and you'll remember! - John Sloan, GateHouse Publishing
