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!

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...

The show was great. Dave Wakeling and the band sounded great... they played all the songs you would expect and want them to play. They even let people jump up on the stage and dance along towards the end... all around a good time.

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.

The band was great! The locals can be a mixed bag though...dealing with sloppy drunks can bring the positive vibe down.

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
