The Beat+AKA Ska

Saturday 16th December

Doors 9pm Support 10pm

Tickets 13.50 (9 concessions & Regulars)

Everett Morton (drums) Ranking Roger (vocals) Blockhead (keyboards)

Neil Deathridge (guitar) Mini Ranking Junior Murphy (vocals)

Andy Pearson (bass) Mark Hamilton (sax)

After the tragically early split of The Beat, one of the very finest of all British 80s bands, they finally reformed properly in 2001. Ranking Roger, Everett, Saxa and Neil got together again for a sellout reunion show at Londons Royal Festival Hall.

Since then theyve been tearing up venues wherever theyve played, performing a mix of their own compositions and the best of The Beats world-class back catalogue such as Twist and Crawl, Mirror In The Bathroom, Stand Down Margaret, Doors Of Your Heart, Hands Off Shes Mine, Too Nice To Talk To, Tears Of A Clown and Cant Get Used To Losing You. With local 3-Minute Heroes AKA Ska warming you up, this is an all-singing, all-skanking Christmas party youll never forget,

A thoroughly enjoyable night this, but I have one question. Doors were at 9pm, aka-Ska on at 9.30 sharp while the venue was still half empty. The Beat were subsequently done and dusted by the back of 12 and the venue all but emptied again leaving half a dozen folk dancing to the dj for the last hour. Why not put the support on later (ensuring they're playing to a decent crowd) and then the main act being on later ensures the venue remains full till closing time? More punters for longer = more bar revenue surely so everybody wins. Just wondering like.
