“Amateur Night” at the Apollo

A few friends and I ventured uptown to Harlem to check out “Amateur Night” at the Apollo Theater last night.

Since 1934, every Wednesday night at 7:30pm aspiring artists and performers have graced the stage of the Apollo Theater with hopes that the magic of the hallowed stage and the approval of the infamous audience will launch their careers in the entertainment world. Apollo Wednesday night alumni are an impressive and ever-expanding roster of world class talent including such legends as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Ben E. King, Jackie Wilson, The Isley Brothers, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, Fat Joe, Lauryn Hill, Dru Hill, Blu Cantrell and many others.

Check out the lungs on these two guys…who will hopefully continue on the history making trail:

a definite must-do if visiting NYC!
