Forming in 1978 in Birmingham, The Beat has seen changes to the original line-up over the last 30 years and the formation of the American based band, The English Beat who have recently toured Australia (led by Dave Wakeling) but it is with great pleasure we welcome back original front man Ranking Roger 6 years since he last performed with ‘Special Beat’ featuring members of The Specials and The Beat. Joining Ranking Roger will be Ranking Junior on vocals, Oscar Harrison on drums plus Andy Pearson , Matt Godwin and Steve Harper on bass, sax and guitar.
Although The Beat often get dubbed a Ska band, their songs of peace, love and unity fuse a number of genres including Pop, Reggae and Punk Rock and their dynamic live show has garnered them a loyal following at home and abroad. Most of you will be familiar with at least one of their hit singles such as; ‘Mirror in the Bathroom’,‘Too Nice To Talk To’, ‘Can’t Get Used To Losing You’, ‘Hands off She’s Mine’ and ‘All Out To Get You’.
Take a trip down memory lane when The Beat bring their relentless energy and world class musicianship to Australia in 2015.
