The English Beat will be in concert on Saturday, March 19, 2022 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.

One tempestuous weekend in March 1979 was not only the date of the Three Mile Island nuclear incident, but also the very first show by a nascent band in Birmingham, England known as The Beat. Introduced as “the hottest thing since the Pennsylvania meltdown”, the band had a sense that the next few years could well be explosive!

When The Beat rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of social, political and musical upheaval. Into this storm came The Beat, trying to calm the waters with their simple message of love and unity set to a great dance beat. They were all about inclusion, rather than exclusion. And, this showed in their personal and music influences.

The original band consisted of Dave Wakeling on vocals and guitar, Andy Cox on guitar, David Steele on bass, and Everett Morton on drums. Later additions, Ranking Roger (toasting) and foundational First Wave Ska legend Saxa (saxophone), completed the outfit. The band crossed over fluidly between soul, reggae, pop and punk. From these disparate pieces, they created an infectious dance rhythm. They became an overnight sensation and one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Two Tone Ska movement.
