Two-Tone Legend Neville Staple And His Band

What's On - Events Calendar for Devon and the surrounding area of Devon
28th September 2017 ** EVENT ENDED **
Overview: Neville Staple, also known as The Original Rudeboy, is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice. He is a living legend.

Neville Staples thirty-five year career in the music business is well documented, from the early days with The Coventry Automatics, The Specials FunBoy3 in the late 70s and 80s, to The Special Beat and various other collaborations during his solo career from the 90s up to the present day.

Nevilles 2-Tone legacy is huge. 2-Tone fused traditional ska music with punk rock attitude, energy and musical elements. The movement helped to transcend and defuse racial tensions in Thatcher-era Britain. The actual imagery of 2 Tone has become almost as famous as the music itself. The famous black and white chequered design has become synonymous with ska.

About his musical legacy, Neville Staple comments: The way we brought it was mixing Jamaican music with the English style, which was actually punk at the time. Now most people are into ska, they listen to all the people that we talked about that they might not have listened to before This has happened again and again with the different waves of ska. I am hearing lots more young bands now also putting their own spin on ska some with dance music and some with a rock beat. Its all good. The music just makes you want to dance. Even when singing about tough times, every-day things or bad things, the beat and the rhythm makes you want to move

Doors: 8pm.
