Funk collective The Apples are coming to Narberth!
Span Arts is incredibly excited that The Apples, an Israeli funk/jazz collective are coming to perform at The Queens Hall, Narberth on Thursday, 30 June.
Comprised of decks, horns, double bass, and drums, big band vibes mixed with Middle Eastern influences, The Apples will play their signature festival sounds. The musical nine-piece formed in 2002 with students from Jerusalem’s Rubin Academy of Music joining with Southern Tel Aviv’s burgeoning underground scene and Haifa’s creative jazz/ethno mentality. Together they started exploring spontaneous, groove-based, jazz-flavoured improvised dance music, mixing their Middle Eastern influences to create a signature sound of indigenous rhythms on top of American R’n’B, jazz and hip hop.
The Apples have released five full length albums, have been featured on Bowers & Wilkins’ Society of Sound, been commissioned by Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, and are featured on countless TV and radio spots. They have also worked with Fred Wesley, a legendary jazz and funk trombonist, best known for his work with James Brown in the 1960s and 1970s.
“You’ll be sucked in to their world of jazz/soul/funk/the list goes on…. sound as quickly as we were.” Planet Notion
Support will come from local blues/funk band, Baked Goods who recently placed third at Skills Wales Popular Music Competition and were invited to compete in Worlds Skills UK Popular Music Performance Competition!
Baked Goods has a very unique style that has been influenced by many different genres from around the world, including funk, ska, blues, jazz, hip hop, and R&B.
The Apples will also be supported on the night by DJ Eugene, DJ Rob Why? and DJ Mr K.
The perfect way to kick start your Summer, this gig is not to be missed!
