The English Beat
Dave Wakeling is a hell of a nice guy! Dave loves to tell you the stories behind his songs, either from stage or after the show. Ask any one of the thousands of fans who have met him over the years and that’s what you’ll hear. Never mind that Dave is the singer/songwriter from two of the most popular bands of the end of the millennium, The English Beat and General Public, he’s a stand up man from Brum. Whether it’s the personal as political in How Can You Stand There, making politics personal in Stand Down Margaret, taking a stand against global warming as he did making Greepeace’s Alternative NRG, or helping little kids stand tall with Smile Train, Dave has always stood for something.
Music to get you up out of your seat, movin' and groovin' to sweet, sweet vintage ska sounds, circa 1963 Kingston, JA. Featuring members of Ruder Than You, West Philadelphia Orchestra, Philly Gumbo, Hoppin’ John Orchestra, Melange and Cultureal.
$24.50 - $38.00
