Dave Wakeling's band, the English Beat, performed last night at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room, proving that despite the 33 years since the band's formation, they still have a place in the history of ska music.

Blueberry Hill's marquee had the iconic 2 tone checkerboard pattern, with the men in the crowd decked out in black suits and skinny ties and women in black tights and mini skirts. Wakeling and the fans have gotten a little older and members of the band have changed, but the iconic "beat girl" logo has remained the same, and Wakeling still sounds just as he did on the original recordings from the late '70s and early '80s.

The English Beat played their hits including "Hands off She's Mine," "Can't Get Used to Loosing You," "Twist and Crawl" and the classic "Mirror in the Bathroom," which ended the set.

Phil Stendek (from Maplewood), opened for the English Beat.
