Heading to Preston Guild Hall in September are iconic British ska rockers The Beat.

Formed in 1978, they are now headed up by original band member Dave Wakeling.

Playing under the name The Beat starring Dave Wakeling, they are famed for mashing up the genres and throughout their career they’ve carved out a niche of music, creating a mish-mash of ska, reggae, pop, soul, latin, and rock.

Last month the ska rockers released their first album for two years, Here We Go Love which followed on from single ‘How Can You Stand There?’, a piece of uptempo ska with rock undertones.

The Beat starring Dave Wakeling will be playing Preston Guild Hall’s Live venue on Friday September 7, with doors at 7pm.

Tickets are priced at £19.50.
