What makes Acapela Studio so special? – Customer feedback
We are grateful to all our audience members and artists for their enthusiastic support.
Trying to capture the atmosphere at Acapela and the brilliant performances of artists is almost impossible as the only way to experience the amazing venue is live! However our audience members are always trying to take home with them a little piece of concerts they attend.
We have pulled together many of these video clips in one place – not great quality – but many of these clips hold great memories for many of our audience. You can view these on the Acapela Audience youtube page.
Below we give just some of the many kind comments received explaining why they feel Acapela is such a special and unique music venue.

“Madassa Soul Band returned to The Acapela in Pentyrch on Friday for an evening of Pizzas, Soul and lots of dancing. The Acapela goes from strength to strength with the removal of some of the pews to make way for a bigger dance area and new additions to the PA equipment making it an improved sound to dance to! And the very receptive audience made full use of it all. This is definitely one of the band’s fave venues and we’re already looking forward to returning soon” Madassa Soul Band
