The Music...

As the lifestyle developed and was adopted by English teenagers of all economic strata, mods expanded their musical tastes beyond jazz and R&B, to also embrace soul (particularly Motown), Jamaican ska and bluebeat. They also developed a distinct brand of British beat music and R&B, exemplified by bands such as the Small Faces, The Who and The Yardbirds. Lesser-known British bands associated with the mod scene include The Action, The Creation, and John's Children.

Mods would gather at all-night clubs such as the Twisted Wheel Club to show off their clothes and dance moves.
