Hailing from working-class Birmingham, England, The English Beat entered the music scene in the troubled times of 1979. When The English Beat rushed onto the music scene it was a time of social, political and musical upheaval. Into this storm they came, trying to calm the waters with their simple message of love and unity set to a great dance beat. The band managed to fuse all of their respective musical influences - soul, reggae, pop and punk - into a unique sound that was highly danceable. The English Beat became one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Two Tone Ska movement.

Consummate showman that he is, Dave Wakeling has continued to keep The Beat alive and strong despite the bands break up in 1983. Dave continues to tour the world as The English Beat with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing all the hits of The Beat, General Public, and songs from his new album “Here We Go Love”.
