‘British Invasion’ celebrated at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Fans of classic rock and anyone interested about the history of rock n' roll came together Wednesday night to celebrate the British Invasion at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.

The event was held in conjunction with the Museum's ongoing exhibit, "Louder Than Words: Rock, Power, & Politics."

Live music from The Jetbeats, a vintage combo out of Grand Rapids started off the event.

Afterwards, a DJ panel including Rob Brandt, Michelle McKormick, Kevin Matthews, and Andy Ren took the stage to talk about the British Invasion and share stories about how the era of music affected them and their careers.

"Everybody knows classic rock or has heard a song, but it means something different to each generation that hears it," says Kristin Mooney, a public affairs specialist with the museum. "The exhibit’s really exciting, because it kind of bridges that divide between generations."

The "Louder Than Words: Rock, Power, & Politics" exhibit will stay open through Sunday, February 11.
