One of the founding fathers of England’s “2-tone” second-wave ska revival, The English Beat have been going strong for 32 years. Lead singer/guitarist and founder Dave Wakeling leads a band that hums like a Porsche Turbo.
Originally called The Beat, the band came together in the rough-and-tumble industrial town of Birmingham, England, a racially mixed group influenced by Jamaican ska, reggae and British punk. The English Beat is a conglomeration of hard-working road dogs who play every gig as if it is there last. Come get your skank on.
