Sid Bernstein, the legendary music promoter who was responsible for the British Invasion that
brought The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to America has been presenting Such As Us at
various venues in New York City. "I heard some hits among their songs," Bernstein said. "This
band has a brilliant future."
