What makes Acapela so special?

It’s wonderful to hear from audience members following a concert whether it be in person on the night or by email / letter after the event that they have enjoyed their visit to the venue. The reasons given as to why they found Acapela so special vary differently, many love the music of course but others our grateful to the attention and service provided by the staff and others just say it was “just so different!”!

Here below Paul James our Programme Director gives his view on what makes Acapela so special!

“Of course the big stars bring a sense of excitement and anticipation to Acapela and it feels very special to hear the original artist perform a classic song close up and personal. There have been many such as “Stay with me Till Dawn” by Judie Tzuke, “Come Up and Make me Smile” by Steve Harley “Miss You” by Hazel O’Connor, “I will Find you” Moya Brennan and so on……….But what makes Acapela so special is finding a new musician or band that takes you by surprise when you least expected it…..performances such as Holy Moly and the Crackers (back next January) and last weekends concert from the outstanding Emily Maguire – concerts that make you think about the performance for days or weeks after the event!

The acoustics are great at Acapela, there are few venues (and I have been too a lot) which allow an artist to be heard with such clarity, no sounds bouncing off low ceilings or dodgy vocalists struggling to be heard – it’s how music should be heard! And then of course possibly the best part is the response from the audience…bands love coming to Acapela as they always comment on the appreciation shown by the audience…in fact Toyah Willcox informed us it was her favourite venue! It’s great to see everyone excited at the end of  the concert…it certainly makes me want to go out and find the next big star or unknown musician and do it all again!”

WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM AUDIENCE MEMBERS ABOUT WHY ACAPELA IS SO SPECIAL TO YOU…WHETHER IT’S ABOUT A SINGLE EVENT OR A SERIES OF EVENTS YOU HAVE ATTENDED.

PLEASE EMAIL INFO@ACAPELA.CO.UK AND WE WILL PLACE IT ON THE WEBSITE FEEDBACK PAGE SO MORE PEOPLE WILL COME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT A SPECIAL AND UNIQUE VENUE ACAPELA IS.
