English Beat - SOLD OUT Biography
The Beat are all about inclusion, rather than exclusion, and this shows in their personnel and their 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. The band crossed over fluidly between soul, reggae, pop and punk, and from these disparate pieces, they created an infectious dance rhythm. Along with their contemporaries The Specials, The Selecter, and Madness, the band became an overnight sensation and one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Two Tone Ska movement.
