LA Chapter Holiday Event - Songwriters in the Round, #5

Join us for our very special Holiday Luncheon on the main stage at House of Blues in West Hollywood...





This special event brings successful songwriters to the stage - performing their hit songs, sharing stories, and perhaps telling us their "secrets of the trade."

Additional Speaker Information

Dave Wakeling takes the stage time and again, touring across the States, Canada, the UK and beyond. He does it for two reasons: First, he loves to play music, period. Second, his job here on Earth is to bring a message of love, unity and a steady, rhythmic groove of danceable songs with a message to the masses. Fans see him as an icon and to the young bands coming up he's the elder statesman of ska. His swooning croon has been covered by such rock luminaries as Peter Townshend, Eddie Vedder and Elvis Costello. He's repeatedly referred to in the press now as a legacy artist and an icon. He learned what those terms actually mean early in 2006 when, much to his surprise, bemusement, and eternal joy, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame contacted him and asked him for his trademark Vox teardrop guitar, to bed displayed in a place of honour alongside the axes of Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Truly a wonderful and humbling experience for a working class boy from Brum! Dave is currently entering a musical renaissance, and fresh off this legacy moment, Dave is planning on going into the studio to lay down some new tracks. Dave also continues to tour as The English Beat, as he had done for the last three decades, with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing the hits of The English Beat, General Public, and his new songs. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be blown away by the ever-changing King of Ska!
