I’m pleased to welcome some new venues and promoters to Apollo – drummer Harry Pope joins us as a representative of London. Harry runs a jazz night at Olivers in London. Also, bassist Andy Champion is on board, representing Newcastle. He runs a great venue called Splinter@The Bridge. Aside from our July tour, LOCUS, we also have some one-off events in the diary in May and June (1st at HEART). The line-up for these events will be announced soon.
We have started exciting work in expanding the Apollo network overseas and I will be travelling to meet with venues and partners later this year. I’ll reveal more as it becomes more concrete, but it’s incredibly exciting!
Finally, we’re working on building an Apollo Collective of musicians to be involved in tours, one-off events and creative collaborations. This list will be published soon, with links to musicians’ websites and soundcloud pages etc. Apollo is growing fast and we are all excited about what lies ahead in the rest of 2013!
