Amateur Night At The Apollo

Until December 19, 2015

Amateur Night At The Apollo has been a key feature in the local music scene since 1934 when it launched, and has been the stepping stone in the career of many world-class musicians and entertainers, including Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder. The audience has the responsibility of cheering loudly for those they like, and booing those they deem less adept off the stage.

Leon Bridges

October 20, 2015

The young Texan "Coming Home" singer is going on tour this summer ahead of his debut album of the same name. The gospel and soul singer harks back to an older time, with a strong emphasis on 1960s rhythm and blues. He has gained national press attention for his work, with The Wall Street Journal describing him as a "throwback to '60s-soul a la Otis Redding and Sam Cooke". He also makes a point of performing in vintage clothing from the era, making his act a true throwback to nostalgic times.
