Well I have been a fan of the beat for more than 20 years and I almost got to see them once before, but it fell through. WHAT A TREAT!!! These guys were fricken amazing. They had a full band with about 8 people. Next time I see them listed...continued

I was actually a little unsure how to rate the event, but I had to go with "Loved It" because it's always great to see Dave Wakeling and his band live. I've been to many shows all over California and they never disappoint. My only reservation...continued

Dave was awesome! His voice is still as strong and he gave an excellent performance. He sang all of his old hits, which was wonderful! I do have to complain about the Canyon Club. They allowed too many people in. I know they violated fire...continued

Dave Wakeling has so much energy, and is so much fun on stage! The music was great, his voice is true, and it was a great evening!

It was a great show! I was a little put off by the band and security letting people (chicks taking selfies, really??) dance on stage towards the end -oh well.

Always great to see The English Beat perform. Dave's voice is still incredible. It was funny to see all the folks who were in college in the 80's in attendance. Great show, so-so venue.

Dave Wakeling and the reformed English Beat were awesome, sounding as good as they did nearly 30 years ago. The set was a combo of songs by The (English) Beat and General Public, including all the hits, with the exception of the songs "Hot You're...continued

The band was awesome! The venue is a bit of a weird vibe. But all-in-all a great night!

Would have Loved It had the CC not oversold the place! It was as jammed as I've ever seen the place and that wasn't good. Took a while to get a drink as well. Wouldn't hurt to add a couple more decent beers. Bring Sam Adams back.

Always fun to see these guys; a blast from the past! Skip the overpriced, terrible food at the Canyon Club and just go for the music; even without eating, we were still able to get a table, as long as we ordered a drink!

English Beat never fail to completely entertain. I see them every time they are in the Los Angeles area and I am never disappointed. They have a tight band, Dave Wakeling sounds great and I love seeing them in small venues. I remember seeing...continued

Great night and The English Beat are always a fun show to see! Complete with jumping on stage and dancing around, “just like the good ol days”
The Canyon Club is a nice intimate venue, but it desperately needs a face lift, the video monitors look...continued
