In booking Madness,Bluesfest have pulled out all the stops.
Give them a challenge that is possible and they always pull it off.

I've seen both The Beat and The English Beat.
I definitely prefer The English Beat with original singer Dave Wakeling, they put on a much better show.

In San Francisco in 1979, to add confusion to the mix I went to a basement bar and saw the "the Beat". But neither of the above. Wiki tells me:

The British ska group of the same name were first to establish themselves as "The Beat" in Europe, prompting a voluntary decision for the U.S. group to be billed as "Paul Collins' Beat" in Europe. In the U.S., Collins' "The Beat" was first to release an album in turn forcing the British group to use the name "The English Beat" in the U.S., albeit only after the British group was threatened with a lawsuit by Columbia, Collins' record label.

That is why Bluesfest 2017 was so fantastic.It allowed me to elect to spend 90 % of my time watching acts with non white vocalists.
White singers out the front of a ska band will never rate with two blokes from the Caribbean.
In the same way as four white blokes rapping as part of the Soul Rebels is never going to rank with having four afro americans out front.
They do not have the genetics.
