New showcase The Apollo Series combines music, poetry

Friday, January 19, 2018
Music, poetry and other forms of art will be the highlight of a new event – The Apollo Series – set to take place at The Haven, 12 Hillcrest Avenue on Saturday, January 27. The showcase will feature three main performers as well as an open stage for musicians, poets, dancers and comedians. 


The first staging of The Apollo Series will be headlined by poet Simon the Writer, local Hip Hop collective The Council and Reggae artiste Koro Fyah. Simon the Writer, also the host and organizer, says, “Our show will have what I call ‘rotating sets’, where our featured acts will deliver a performance and then return to the stage later to deliver another.” In between the headliners’ sets, the stage will be open for a short period to willing performers in the audience. “There are not many places or events where upcoming talent can hone their skills and be heard,” says Simon. “We see The Apollo Series as being the perfect platform. We will also give you a variety of quality acts in a different format.” Simon the Writer is a published poet who has won several Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) awards. He will be followed by Five Steez, Inztinkz and The Sickest Drama of The Council, a four-member collective that recently released its album, Nothing Else Matters. The event’s trio of performers will be completed by Bebble Rock Records’ Koro Fyah, who is still promoting his 2016 debut EP, Rough Diamond. Admission is $500 and showtime is 8PM.

The Apollo Series is being presented by A.C.T.I.O.N. Jamaica and is sponsored by the Main Event Entertainment Group and Marketing Plus Communications.
