About The English Beat

One of the most important British ska revival groups of the late ’70s/early ’80s, The English Beat stood out from the crowd with the distinctive vocals of Dave Wakeling and punk rocker Ranking Roger, as well as the highly skilled musicians backing them up. Their early singles rose to the top ten in the UK and popped up often on MTV. The English Beat is best known for their singles “Mirror in the Bathroom” and the Smokey Robinson cover, “Tears of a Clown.” Over the years, members of the band also became part of General Public and the Fine Young Cannibals.

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!

I caught the flu and my guest, who traveled here from Florida, came down with viral pneumonia prior to the concert date. So we didn't have the pleasure of attending the show :-(
