The English Beat emerged into the music scene in the late 70’s in England amid social, political and musical disorder. The Beat quickly became one of the most popular and influential bands of the British ska movement. Their music reflects sociopolitical ideals with themes of love and unity set to a dance beat.
The Beat’s music fuses ska, pop, soul, reggae and punk rock, to a very danceable beat led by charismatic frontman Dave Wakeling and supported by a very tight band. 30+ years after their inception, The Beat is still alive, performing new compositions and touring.
