The Skatalites 60th Anniversary ‘Diamond Jubilee’ Tourw/ Special guests142 Pacific Coast Hwy,Hermosa Beach, CA 9025421+ OnlyAbout the ArtistMore than a band, the Skatalites are an institution, an aggregation of top-notch musicians whodidn’t merely define the sound of Jamaica, but WERE the sound of Jamaica across the 50s and60s. Frequently credited as the originators of ska — the musical mash-up of calypso, Caribbeanmento, R&B, and rock & roll that predated both reggae and rocksteady — the Skatalites; variousmembers came up through the nations hotel bar scene of the late 50s, banding together as bothan original group and the often uncredited backing band for artists/producers such as PrinceBuster and Duke Reid. Although the group officially existed in its original incarnation for lessthan 18 months (1964-1965), its members brought their signature styles to hundreds uponhundreds of the islands releases. Following a handful of reunions in the 70s and early 80s, theSkatalites re-formed for good in 1986 and, over subsequent decades, have included a rotatinglineup of both original members and newcomers responsible for late-period highlights like1994 Hi-Bop Ska and 2007 On the Right Track. A version of the band continued to tour andrecord into the 2010s, even as most of its founding members passed on.

The English Beat

The English Beatw/ Special Guests142 Pacific Coast Hwy,Hermosa Beach, CA 9025421+ OnlyAbout the Artist One tempestuous weekend in March 1979 was not only the date of the Three Mile Island nuclear incident, but also, in Birmingham, England, the very first show by a nascent band known as The Beat. Introduced as “the hottest thing since the Pennsylvania meltdown”, the band had a sense that the next few years could well be explosive! The Beat hailed from working class, industrial Birmingham, England. When The Beat rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of social, political and musical upheaval. Into this storm came The Beat, trying to calm the waters with their simple message of love and unity set to a great dance beat. The Beat were all about inclusion, rather than exclusion, and this showed in their personnel and their music influences. The original band consisted of Dave Wakeling on vocals and guitar, Andy Cox on guitar, David Steele on bass, and Everett Morton on drums – later additions Ranking Roger (toasting) and foundational First Wave Ska legend Saxa (saxophone) completed the outfit. The band crossed over fluidly between soul, reggae, pop and punk, and from these disparate pieces they created an infectious dance rhythm. Along with their contemporaries The Specials, The Selecter, and Madness, the band became an overnight sensation and one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Two Tone Ska movement.
