The English Beat are a ska-revival band founded in England in 1978 during a period of high unemployment and social upheaval in the United Kingdom. Their songs fuse ska, pop, soul, reggae and punk rock, and their lyrics deal with themes of love, unity and sociopolitical topics.
The English Beat consists of Dave Wakeling (vocals, guitar), Rhythmm Epkins, on drums/vocals, Wayne Lothian on bass/vocals, Antonee First Class, toaster; Matt Morrish on sax/vocals, Ray Jacildo on keys/vocals.

Dave Wakeling has assembled an incredible band and is playing his hits with the same raucous enthusiasm that made The English Beat one of the biggest acts of the New Wave Era… Every time they play! The English Beat are more popular now than ever. Don’t miss this show and bring the whole family. Doors are at 8:30 and the show is at 9:30pm.

The English Beat continues to take on 2 tone, ska, reggae and new wave, still dishing out on issues of strife and discontentment at times, but always with a happy, danceable tune… drawing large audiences and still has a growing fan base” – San Gabriel Valley Tribune

“[Dave Wakeling of The English Beat] is a musician who seems to genuinely enjoy performing, and even those new to the Beat couldn’t help but get swept up in the infectious brand of “happy” music, as one put it.” – Napa Valley Register
