The English Beat
October 13, 2012
Infectious syncopated beats and stellar grooves define the exuberant English Beat. A leader of ‘80’s British, 2-tone/ska, their protest songs “Stand Down Margaret” and “Get a Job,” and smart, sugar-free love songs “I Confess” and “Jeanette” resonate magnificently today. Standing room only for skanking to English Beat’s freewheeling mix of ska, pop, reggae, punk rock and new wave.
