The musical brainchild of former Clevelanders Nathan Hedges and Dan Miraldi, the New Preservation Society embraces “unapologetically retro music as a love letter to the first wave of the British Invasion.”
The group references acts such as the Beatles, Kinks, Billy J. Kramer and Gerry & the Pacemakers as it aims “to capture the charm, tones and excitement of early '60s British beat music.”
“We love the sound of this time period,” says Miraldi in a press release announcing the group’s upcoming Cleveland gig, which takes place on Saturday, May 18, at the Beachland Tavern
“We’re having a conversation with an era and scene for which we weren’t around but still inspired us,” Hedges adds. “This is something I’ve always wanted to do. This genre means a lot to both us and we’re paying tribute to some of our heroes.”
The duo has been busy self-producing and recording its debut EP and has just issued a single “Now or Never"/"She Don’t Even Know,” tracks which show off their harmony vocals and keen melodic sensibilities.
