The classic British Invasion was in 1964-1966, but the term may also be applied to later "waves" of UK artists to significantly impact entertainment markets outside of Britain.
The original British Invasion peaked in late 1965-early 1966, and had essentially played out by 1967, when the recording styles of British and US artists had essentially ceased to be distinct from one another.
The sound of the British Invasion led directly to developments such as acid rock, heavy metal, and progressive rock, and would also be echoed in the punk rock, power pop and New Wave movements of the 1970s and 1980s.

Between 1964 and 1966, the British bands dominated the American charts, as well as the charts in the U.K. In that time, there was a second wave of British Invasion bands -- such as the Who and the Zombies -- which was indebted to both American rock and British Invasion pop.
Most early British rock was far more mannered than its inspirations, and its best performers not quite up to the level of American rockers -- simply because rock & roll was full of indigenous American musical ingredients that British performers weren't familiar with.
But by and large, early British pop/rock's greatest importance was as an inspiration to the next generation of British rockers who would spearhead the British Invasion.

The British Invasion All-Stars are a 21st century band with a '60s sound, which isn't surprising because all of its members are veteran rockers who belonged to various '60s bands (some more prominent than others).
The British Invasion All-Stars' self-titled debut album, which was released on the independent Mooreland Street label in 2002, shows no awareness of the alternative rock sounds of the early 2000s; the band is totally unaffected by any of the punk, new wave, post-punk, pop-metal, or alternative rock that came after the '60s.

Some British fantasies are more literary than Rowling’s books and some are not, but all offer pleasure to their readers.

 British Invasion Amp Review
"The Invasion's tones are very, very, well British - plugged into the low input, bell-like Vox flavoured chimes leap out of that 10" Jensen with surprising punch and the high input packs a considerable boost in gain for screaming, late sixties inspired lead tones.
The treble control has exceptional range - backing this off and pulling the boost switches yielded a much darker, heavier distortion very reminiscent of Brian May or early Clapton, perhaps, with the tone changing character from vintage Vox to vintage Marshall, depending on which switches are pulled.
It's a very traditional layout, and easier to understand than the more British 'tag board' style of point to point.
