The Beat announce Stroud Christmas show

This Christmas, infamous ska and reggae band The Beat will be heading to Stroud.

With Ranking Junior now taking centre stage, the band will be hitting the Subscription Rooms on Saturday, December 17, to get audiences dancing to some of the most famous ska and reggae tracks ever written.

One of the key bands in the UK ska revival of the late '70s and '80s, The Beat still bring the near-perfect balance of pop melodies and taut rhythms that made them stars and won them worldwide acclaim.

Based in Birmingham, The Beat released their debut single "Tears of a Clown" through The Specials' 2-Tone label in 1979. The single went Top Ten in the UK and they soon struck a deal with Arista to distribute on their own Go Feet label.

Their debut studio album 'Just Can't Stop' went gold in England, and included the now-cult single "Mirror In The Bathroom".

The band's ferocious live performances and clever blend of personal and political lyrics continue to make them stars to this day, and they'll be diving into their back catalogue at the festive show this December.
