This groovy retro-revue highlights hits that range from the early sixties girl groups, to the Supremes’ memorable melodies and Aretha Franklin’s soul, to the screams of the British Invasion and Woodstock rock.

BEEHIVE looks back on the issues that the nation faces during those turbulent times civil rights, Vietnam, assassinations, the women’s movement, the generation gap all accomplished through some of the most celebrated and memorable songs of the era.
