Spring Season at The Apex


The Apex has all manner of music on offer in spring…


Familiar names include; The South - an impressive 9-piece band featuring former members of The Beautiful South; former Drifters singer Roy Hemmings with his Motown & Philadelphia show; one of the most popular bands of the British ska movement The Beat, whose hits include ‘Mirror in the Bathroom’ and ‘Too Nice To Talk To’; 10cc’s co-founder Graham Gouldman and his Heart Full of Songs project; The Manfreds still with original front man Paul Jones; and Roachford, singer of ‘Cuddly Toy’ (a mainstay of radio airplay for over three decades) and member of Mike + the Mechanics.


Blues and rock are taken care of by the Kris Barras Band - Kris was voted one of the ‘Top Blues Guitarists in the World’ by Music Radar, while the band scored ‘Best Album’ in the European Blues Awards, and one of the UK’s hottest guitar players, Laurence Jones - three-times winner of the British Blues Award’s ‘Young Artist Of The Year’. Hayseed Dixie are the undisputed creators (and masters) of Rockgrass: hillbilly deliverances of rock classics such as ‘Ace Of Spades’, ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ and ‘Eye of The Tiger’.


Direct from London’s world-famous jazz club, The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars combine world class live jazz, narration and rare archive footageThe Lindy Hop Dance Company and Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra invite you to Harlem's hottest nightclub for ‘Swinging at The Cotton Club’. Syd Lawrence Orchestra bring a rip roaring, Big Band extravaganza, while

the 19-piece National Youth Jazz Orchestra return with an homage to Ray Charles starring Tommy Baize, lead singer of the BBC Strictly Come Dancing band.


The band that launched British folk-rock, Fairport Convention make a welcome return to the venue, as do Britain’s fiddling supergroup”, Feast of Fiddles. First formed for Celtic Connections, Butler, Blake & Grant, with Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake and Suede’s Bernard Butler, have natural camaraderie and beautifully crafted tunes. The John Martyn Project features six musicians and vocalists, paying tribute to John Martyn – the virtuoso guitarist who emerged from the British folk scene in the late 1960s. Both Sides Now is an homage to the songs of Joni Mitchell by Mim Grey, Jo Harman, Mike Mayfield and Redtenbacher's Funkestra.
