The English Beat are playing the Orange County Fair. And though the stage at the fairgrounds is reserved for former greats, the bands that play there have done great things that can never be denied. With a sound that evokes the reggae-esque Police, the English Beat, or Beat if you prefer, are contemporaries of the Sting-helmed project. Known for still ubiquitous '80s hits as "Sooner or Later," and "Mirror in the Bathroom," the English Beat, or just the Beat if you will, promise to bring a live show that will have you skanking in the aisles, just like the days of yore.
