English Beat does some Freestylin’ at Freestyle Fest 2017!!

Hey Beat fans,

Just wanted to give you a head’s up about our appearance this weekend, Feb. 22, in Long Beach at the LA Freestyle Fest 2017!!

We’ll be sharing the bill with an extraordinary group of dance, R&B hip-hop artists including Bell Biv Devoe, House of Pain, Arrested Development, Naughty by Nature, Mark Morrison, Stevie B., & more!!



Here’s an excerpt of what our Dave had to say about being included on such a great line-up:

“I do feel honored to make it into a dance-oriented market,” he says. “I’ve crossed over from pop and ska to dance now. We’ve got the ability with our catalog of songs to play a punky show, which we did on the Flogging Molly cruise, or we can do a reggae thing, like opening for UB40, or an ‘80s pop theme. It’ll be a bit more of a challenge this time, but I imagine that pop-to-rock stuff like ‘Too Nice to Talk To’ and ‘Tenderness will do well. ‘Tenderness’ has been used a million times in rap and hip-hop anyway.”
