THE STICKMEN confirm March 2018 date – with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson legend TONY LEVIN


We are delighted to announce that Stickmen fronted by Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto, the powerhouse bass and drums over many decades behind the group King Crimson appear at Acapela in March 2018 with Markus Reuter. Tony Levin is of course a long time member of Peter Gabriel’s band so his appearance at Acapela will be one to remember.

This is a major coup for the venue as they are only playing 4 intimate gigs in the UK following a long USA tour. WOW! Come and hear the Stickmen play music from a variety of their solo and band projects that have been a major part of their careers.

Tony Levin plays the Chapman Stick, from which the band takes it’s name. Having bass and guitar strings, the Chapman Stick functions at times like two instruments. Markus Reuter plays his self designed touch style guitar – again covering much more ground than a guitar or a bass. And Mastelotto’s drumming encompasses not just the acoustic kit, but a unique electronic setup too, allowing him to add loops, samples, percussion and more.

This is going to be a very special gig, so book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Tickets available NOW – CLICK HERE

Michael Buerk – brilliant journalist, news reader, celebrity and speaker!

REVIEW – “An Evening with Michael Buerk”

The audience who gathered for “An Evening with Michael Buerk” was not disappointed as Michael gave a wonderful, funny and humorous account of his life as one of the UK’s leading journalists.

Most of the audience I suspect, were not quite sure what to expect when Michael was introduced on stage by BBC Wales news reporter Nick Palit, but the audience was soon won over by his relaxed presenting style. Straight from the start he had the audience on side as his very funny tales of his life in the media were told as if he was a full time comedian! It wasn’t all fun and laughter, however as Michael also gave some very moving and graphic accounts of his time working across the globe including war zones and countries struck by famine, his news story that shook the world in 1984 when he reported on the Ethiopian famine.

After speaking for well over an hour ( it did not seem like it !) Michael came back after the interval and took questions from the audience compered by Nick Palit. From I’m a celebrity, news reading to reporting as a foreign correspondent the questions again allowed the audience an opportunity to learn more about his fascinating experiences. Without doubt an extraordinary life has been lived by Michael which he recounted in a modest but enthusiastic way – commenting that he would do it all again (his life as a foreign correspondent) but not the news reading!

A lovely evening and a lovely man, who after the event was over, was very happy to mix with everyone in attendance for a selfie or two.


Sian and Jen’s wedding at Acapela Studio

Acapela Studio was delighted to be the venue chosen by Sian and Jen for their wedding last Saturday.

The wedding was a wonderful occasion with the Treharris Male Voice Choir ensuring that the day was one to remember with their wonderful singing.

We wish Sian and Jen every happiness for the future.

Thanks to all the guests, many who had not been before who have kindly said how much they enjoyed the venue! We hope we see you all back very soon.

It’s great to know that as well as concerts and pizza nights,  Acapela is also able to make a very special day memorable whether it’s a wedding, birthday party, anniversary or other special occasion.
