Event Details

Music in the Park returns to celebrate its 26th year with a concert featuring the iconic The English Beat on Thursday, July 17, 2014.

By Christmas of 1979, The English Beat were riding high in the UK charts with their first single, a smoking remake of the classic Smokey Robinson tune, Tears of a Clown. The Beat kept scoring hits with tunes that have now become so popular that it’s hard to remember a time when they didn’t exist, such as Mirror in the Bathroom, Save it for Later, I Confess, Stand Down Margaret, and their serene cover of the Andy Williams-penned, Can’t Get Used To Losing You. Dave Wakeling has continued to keep The Beat alive and strong. Dave continues to tour the world as The English Beat with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing all the hits of The Beat, General Public, and his new songs.

Also featured are:

  • Finish Ticket – American indie pop out of Alameda, CA
  • The Holdup – a San Jose quartet with a unique sound that incorporates elements of hip-hop, indie, reggae and pop
