Why See The English Beat?
The Ska Greats Return
The English Beat (or The Beat as they're known in their native UK) surprised fans last year with the announcement of a new record in the works. Their first studio album since 1982's Special Beat Service, Here We Go Love is being funded through the crowdfunding site Pledgemusic and is due for release later this fall. Dave Wakeling, who is behind the creation of the long-awaited album has put the long delay between album releases down to a hugely hectic touring schedule for their fans for the past 30 years - we can't wait to hear the new material! Catch them playing a wealth of new material alongside their classic hits when they play Cabooze in Minneapolis, MN, Closed March 21, 2017
This current line-up of the group features original singer and principal songwriter David Wakeling, who lent the group his unmistakable vocals throughout their 80s heydey. A major player in the English ska revival, pioneered through the Two Tone record label, The English Beat burst onto the scene with their 1980 debut I Just Can't Stop It, featuring the tracks Hands Off She's Mine and Jackpot.
Performance date: 21 March 2017
