The English Beat at The Coach House

Every skanking fan of 2 Tone Ska owes a little something to The English Beat. Formed in 1978, the original line up, led by front man Dave Wakeling, spearheaded into mainstream success from 1980-82. Their infamous rude boy anthems like "Mirror in the Bathroom", "Best Friend" and "Too Nice To Talk To" showed off a unique style of ska and pop that still gets you bouncing every time you hear it. These days, Wakeling fronts the U.S. version of this legendary ska group. Thin ties and trilby hats are welcome as The English Beat hop down to San Juan Capistrano to rock a show at the Coach House.
