British Revolution and Sounds Like Summer – Getting Your Cover Jam on at EPCOT

British Revolution was one of the few acts to survive the recent massive overhaul of EPCOT World Showcase entertainment that resulted in the departures of many popular performing groups including Canada pavilion’s beloved Off-Kilter (to be featured next week!).

I’m relieved and happy that these guys are still performing as they were a definite must-watch when I’ve visited EPCOT. I hadn’t even planned to stop the last time I visited the World Showcase but hearing that they were playing as I was passing through the United Kingdom pavilion, the lure of their music and their energy was too great and I had to go and watch and sing along and yes, maybe dance a bit off to the back!

Honestly, seeing these guys was like a touch of home for me as they reminded me of bands that I love at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure like The 80z All-Stars and The Mad T Party band.

They play a fun selection of music from various British rock icons ranging from The Beatles to The Who to Queen and I can’t pay a higher compliment than to say that they made me stop and watch them and I just had to groove along with them.  That’s the definition of great entertainment for me. I really liked these guys a lot each time I saw them and would definitely recommend stopping by the UK Pavilion at EPCOT to check them out!

But if you’re looking for an additional, wider range of music this summer, you might also want to head for the America Gardens Theater at the American Adventure in World Showcase from June 7 to July 25 where several tribute bands will be participating in the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series!

This year’s bands include tributes to Journey, U2, The Eagles and more! Each week a different band plays three shows per night, so if you’re going to be at EPCOT this summer, go and get your rock on!

The current schedule for the series (as with all things Disney, it is of course subject to change):

  • DSB: A Tribute to Journey – June 7 to 13, 2015
  • 2U: A Tribute to U2 – June 14 to 20, 2015
