Amateur Night At The Apollo

Open Run

Amateur Night At The Apollo has been a key feature in the local New York 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.

After first coming to mainstream attention when his ebullient folky cover of The Knife's 'Heartbeats' was used to soundtrack 250,000 bouncy balls cascading down San Francisco's Filbert Street for a Sony advert, Jose Gonzalez has become recognised as an eccentric musician who thrills with a mix of classical guitar and soft melodies.

Don't miss the divine Mavis Staples, as she blesses us with her incredible voice and back catalogue of gospel, soul, R & B, with a little rock thrown in for good measure! One of the most powerful voices in the 'biz, Staples has been making music since the 1960's when she and her family formed the group The Staples Singers. Throughout the decade they became synonymous with the Civil Rights Movement, offering spiritually strong messages through their songs.
