The British Are Coming are one of the best British Rock tribute groups in the area and they will be performing at The Londoner’s St. Patrick’s day party, which starts at 9 p.m. They are the alter-ego of Phil Pritchett and his band and they play shows all over the country. According to his website, Phil “Since 1995 P2 has been releasing independent albums and crisscrossing the country with his livewire shows and fun, intelligent songs.” Some of the songs in their repertoire include: Tired Of Waiting (Kinks), Stoned Me (Van Morrison), Rocket Man (Elton John), Wild World (Cat Stevens), Love Me Do (Beatles), London Calling (Clash), Ruby Tuesday (Rolling Stones), I Saw Her Standing There (Beatles), I Can’t Get No Satisfaction (Rolling Stones) and Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
