A New British Invasion in Southern California?

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 16, 2007 -- The classic British Invasion was in 1964-1966, when an influx of rock & roll performers from the U.K. took the U.S. by storm, but the term has also been applied to later "waves" of U.K. artists that have had significant impact on entertainment markets on American soil. Today, a new British wave has washed up another English talent onto the beaches of Santa Barbara -- Executive Producer of Hub Media ( Gary Sugarman. Gary and his company are intending to have a significant impact on video and film markets across America and the rest of the globe.
