The English Beat is a band with an energetic mix of musical styles and a sound like no other. The band's unique sound has allowed it to endure for nearly three decades and appeal to fans, young and old, all over the world.
When The English Beat (known simply as The Beat in their native England) rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of massive social and political unrest and economic and musical upheaval. This set the stage for a period of unbridled musical creativity, and thanks in large part to the Punk
movement and it's DIY approach to making music, artists like The Beat were able to speak out and speak their mind on the news of the day.
Band leader Dave Wakeling never felt constrained by the movement. Dave has always viewed ska as a springboard, not a straight jacket. Indeed, the band's sound continued to evolve over their first three studio albums, through the General Public era (a band formed by Dave with Ranking Roger, the toaster from The Beat), and has continued it's evolution with the forthcoming English Beat album “Here We Go Love”, a PledgeMusic crowd-funded album set for release in 2016, the band's first new album since 1982's “Special Beat Service”.
Consummate showman that he is, Dave Wakeling has continued to keep The Beat alive and strong. Dave continues to tour the world as The English Beat with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing all the hits of The Beat, General Public, and songs from his new album “Here We Go Love”.
You just can’t stop The English Beat!
The narrative storytelling in folk singer-songwriter Bryan Jones’ music brings to life an eclectic cast of characters only an inspired mind could conjure up. But Jones’ talent doesn’t end with the pen—his strong, bare vocal abilities are one to be reckoned with. And much like the early country legends, Jones’ would spill his blood if it gave life to a song.
Jones’ lyrically driven songs will reverberate in your head long after witnessing a performance, but it’s the echo of his honest spirit that will stick with you the longest. His songs are a direct reflection of his life, travels and dreams. So much so that a handful of them have been inspired directly from his haunted dreams. An artist never truly sleeps.
Raised by his grandmother in the small town of Gardnerville, Nev., Jones’ relationship with music began at an early age. The self-proclaimed former band geek’s talents have taken him through Europe, across the United States and back again.
With four albums under his belt with his energetic Americana band Buster Blue, Jones’ solo project is a dialed in representation of his musical talents, a true portrait of who he is as an artist. You can catch him wailing on the harmonica, finger-picking his acoustic guitar, or exploring the depths of his full vocal range—but no matter where or when you witness it, he’ll be giving it his all, because a cowboy blasting off in a rocket ship has no limits.
