Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip and 107.9 The Alternative present ska pioneers, The English Beat, along with special guests.
The English Beat emerged into the music scene in 1979 England amid social, political and musical disorder. They 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 band’s members uniquely blend their individual roots of soul, reggae, pop and punk.
Music from singer, songwriter and guitarist Dave Wakeling and vocalist Rankling Roger’s General Public, which the two musicians formed after the 1983 breakup of The English Beat, will also be performed.
At the show, Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip will be giving away an all expense paid trip to London to see this year’s “Hard Rock Calling Festival” with Bon Jovi and more. No purchase is necessary.
