Featuring the look and sounds of the 1960’s British Invasion era, UnionJack follows the history of the British Invasion from the early days of “Beatlemania” through the end of the decade. UnionJack takes you back to the days of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, Hollies, Searchers, Yardbirds, Badfinger, Dave Clark 5, and the many others that followed these great groups. A five-piece band, UnionJack was one of Western Mass’ original “tribute” bands formed in 1979. After years of performing with other bands, UJ’s members reformed in 2002. The current lineup features: Gary Wilkinson of Belchertown, (guitar, vocals), Dave Lempke, (Holyoke), (drums, vocals), Jim Brown, (South Hadley), (guitar, vocals), Peter Schindelman, (W. Springfield) (bass, vocals), and Greg Mitchell, (N. Adams) (Keyboards, vocals). Wilkinson’s lead vocals on classic Beatles’ tunes have always been the band’s strength, along with some great material and more than a little bit of humor. www.4unionjack.com
