English Beat - Saturday Show - SOLD OUT!! Biography
The Beat are all about inclusion over exclusion, a theme that clearly shines through in everything they do from their lineup through their noted musical influences. Originally consisting of band members Dave Wakeling (vocals/guitar), Andy Cox (guitar), David Steele (bass), and Everett Morton (drums), The Beat criss-crossed fluidly between soul, reggae, pop and punk in their early years as they worked on establishing their key sound. From disparate chunks of one genre mixed with inconclusive segments of another, The Beat created their own full sound by utilizing carefully selected bits and pieces of the sonic art that surrounded them. Known for generating infectious dance rhythms, The Beat became one of the most popular and influential bands of the British 2-Tone Ska Movement.
Rian Basilio and The Roosters Biography

Rian Basilio and The Roosters are a group in which a perfect combination of talent and soul has come together to create a unique and extremely progressive sound.
