You just can’t stop The Beat!
One of the biggest bands of the 2-Tone movement, Led by Dave Wakeling,The Beat will be the gig of the weekend. Dave has lived in the USA for over thirty years and rarely plays in the uk, so we are so pleased that after 4 years of chasing we have finally persuaded him to fly over with his amazing band to play for us.
Formed in Birmingham in 1978, the Beat (known in North America as the English Beat) have released three albums to date, ‘I Just Can’t Stop It’, ‘Wha’ppen?’ and ‘Special Beat Service’ and are known the world over for a string of hit singles, including “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”. Their songs of peace, love and unity fuse ska, pop, reggae and punk rock and their dynamic live show has ensured them a loyal following at home and abroad.
Marquis Drive are the ultimate UK’s no 1 Madchester/britpop/indie band. They replicate cult anthems from mainly the 90s such as Bittersweet (The Verve), Step On (Happy Mondays), Resurrection (The Stone Roses), Sit Down (James), and many more from iconic bands such as The Farm. The Charlatans, Inspiral Carpets, Ocean Color Scene, The La’s, Oasis, Soup Dragons , Shed Seven and many more…
Marquis Drive have spent many years touring up and down the country supporting the likes of Dodgy, The Farm, Reverend & the Makers, Space, The Wonderstuff, Shed Seven and well known bands. Their infectious live performance are second to none leaving the crowd hungry for more. They do not disappoint and for this show they will be adding Ska & Northern Soul Anthems.
