Neville Staple Band — The original rude boy, and one of the undisputed forerunners of the ska movement. Best known for being the lead singer of The Specials, Neville is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice. His biography reads like a who's who of rock. Not only has he worked with such legends as Elvis Costello, David Byrne and Ali Campbell but has also shared the stage with ska icons Rankin Roger (English Beat), forming Special Beat. Although this line up never actually recorded an album, they successfully toured the US with Sting and Steel Pulse before embarking on their own headline tour.
Roddy Radiation & The Skabilly Rebels — Roddy Radiation, the main man with The Specials, is back bringing his 2-Tone sound to a new generation.
Beat Goes Bang — Beat Goes Bang deliver a stunning set of all The Beat’s classic hits, featuring original members of The Beat and Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Everett Morton the original drummer for The Beat has brought together some of Birmingham's most talented artists to reform as the Beat Goes Bang.
