Reggae, ska and punk rock band The English Beat returns to Clearwater! When the band formed 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 its DIY approach to making music, artists like The Beat were able to speak out and speak their mind on the news of the day, as in Stand Down Margaret, things that mattered to them and the youth culture, as in Get A Job and universal matters of the heart and soul, as in their classic hits I Confess and Save It For Later.
