The English Beat

The Beat (known in North America as The English Beat and Australia as The British Beat) has been on the music scene since 1979. The group fuses soul, reggae, ska, pop and punk into a unique and danceable sound that made them one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Ska movement. Dave Wakeling fronts the US version of the band; Ranking Roger, the English version, yet both tour frequently worldwide.
