ACAPELA GOES FUNK – with Shakatak!

We are delighted to welcome Shakatak to Acapela on May 4th 2018 ….. buy your tickets now as this will be very popular!

Shakatak have enjoyed a level of success and career longevity rarely paralleled in contemporary music – but then Shakatak is a particularly unusual group.

Because of the nature of their music, their fan base is one that is far reaching while always retaining an ‘underground element’. This paradox sees the band, who are known primarily as serious jazz/funk musicians, enjoying both high ‘cult’ status and instant recognition as a household name.

After a number of successful top-twenty singles in the UK, the band went on to score unprecedented international success with the release of the classic ‘Nightbirds” recording and the title track has now become a standard in the popular music repertoire. This success was repeated with the top-ten hit “Down on the Street.

THIS IS A GOING TO BE THE FUNKIEST ACAPELA HAS EVER BEEN….DON’T MISS IT!

DON’T FORGET YOUR DANCING SHOES!

Gordon Giltrap wows Acapela audience

Gordon Giltrap live music CardiffLegendary acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap wowed Acapela last night with an amazing set of guitar pieces old and new.

He did not disappoint the audience with some amazing renditions of his classic tracks combined with a dry sense of humour that ensured that it felt like a very personal performance for all in attendance. Closing the first set with his biggest hit “Heartsong” it was a very special moment to be there to hear him play everyones favourite Holiday programme theme tune! It sounded superb , full of energy and was yet another Acapela special moment!

Tales of his career and the musicians he had played with – Rick Wakeman, Eric Clapton etc – made for a very interesting evening.

The following quote taken from Facebook from Gareth Spencer says it all – “Great night tonight watching Gordon Giltrap at the Acapela Studio, to quote a friend at the gig “It is amazing to be in the presence of brilliance and to be sat so close watching him play”. . . The guy is a legend.”

And another Facebook quote from Jonathan Winter T’was indeed a crackin’ night and that guy sure can play the guitar!!!!! lovely support act too…….and to top it off the pizza was tops!”

Thanks to all who attended and the excellent feedback.
