The original Rude boy is coming to Morecambe.

Jamaican born singer Neville Staple, who became famous with The Specials, is now with his own band The Neville Staple Band.

Neville Staple is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice.

Music mogul Pete Waterman wrote the foreword to Neville’s biography ‘Original Rude Boy’ which tells of his involvement with the 1970s Sound System Scene and childhood in Jamaica.

He has a very rich musical history including working for many years in the US with various bands and also with The Hitmen.

He wrote the soundtrack for the film ‘Vampires Anonymous’.

The band will perform this Saturday at the Platform.

Also on at the seafront venue this week is Jaleo Flamenco on Thursday night and comedian Lewis Schaffer on Friday.

For tickets and full details for any of these shows call 01524 582803 or go to the Morecambe Visitor Information Centre at the Platform during opening hours.
