Hailing from Birmingham, England, the English Beat (known simply as the Beat in England) has been on the music scene since 1979. The Beat fuses soul, reggae, pop and punk into a unique and highly danceable sound. Along with contemporaries such as The Specials, The Selecter and Madness, The English Beat became one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Ska movement. Founding member Dave Wakeling performs with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing the hits of The English Beat, General Public, and his new songs.
