Known the world over for a string of hit singles, including Mirror in the Bathroom, Too Nice To Talk To, Can’t Get Used To Losing You, Hands off She’s Mine and All Out To Get You, The Beat present a wall of sound that transcends time and ska fusion rhythms to ignite a crowd. They play with the sole aim of connecting with and entertaining their appreciative audience with their relentless energy and world class musicianship.

One of the biggest bands of the 2-Tone movement, their songs of peace, love and unity fuse ska, pop, reggae and punk rock and their dynamic live show has garnered them a loyal following at home and abroad.
