The English Beat Concert
Saturday, March 19, 2022 | 7 p.m. at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents alternative new wave rock group The English Beat Saturday, March 19,2022.
From working class, industrial Birmingham, England, The Beat (English was added when the band reformed in 2003) rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of social, political and musical upheaval. Into this storm, The Beat entered and tried to calm the waters with their simple message of love and unity set to a great dance beat. Though the band broke up in 1983, some members reunited in 2003 for a one-off gig at the Royal Festival Hall.
Though attempts to reunite the original line-up failed, original band member Dave Wakeling has continued to keep The Beat alive. He currently tours the world as The English Beat playing the hits of The Beat, General Public and his new songs.
Current members of The English Beat include Wakeling, King Schuascha (toasting), Nucci Cantrell (drums, vocals), Matt Morrish (sax, vocals), Kevin Lum (keys, vocals), Minh Quan (keys, vocals) and Brad Engstrom (bass, vocals).
