Following in the mighty footsteps of legendary performers such as Bill Haley, Neil Diamond, Bett Midler, John Denver, Neil Young, Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, Taylor Swift & Lady Gaga, our very own Apollo Dawn has now performed at the world famous, ‘The Bitter End’ rock club in Greenwich Village, New York.
Being established in 1961, New York’s oldest and most respected rock club has hosted an incredible ‘roll of honour’ of the great and the glorious of US and World popular music. Be it Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder or Lady Gaga, the in-house grand piano still resonates to their famous refrains. Indeed, as the whole fabric of The Bitter End has been soaking up the atmosphere for over 50 years, the walls, floor and ceiling all seem to echo and resonate those past performances.
Having gigged together in the UK for several years, it can certainly be said that neither Tom nor Maisie had ever felt more nervous before a performance. But, once they hit their first note, the appreciative audience made these visitors from ‘across the pond’ feel most appreciated and welcomed them onto the exclusive list of artists who can claim to have performed at ‘The Bitter End’.
It was noticeable that Tom was picking-up the vibes from previous pianists, there was certainly a degree of additional flamboyance to his performance.
Once Maisie had learned that the word ’Plectrum’ just wasn’t used the US and the item she needed to ask for was a ‘Pick’, she also threw herself into her performance. Never has it been more true to say that the UK and the USA are separated by a common language!!
It’s fair to say that those initial pre-show nerves didn’t make it onto the stage; they performed like they were where they belonged, and they definitely earned their place on that exclusive list of artists who have performed at ‘The Bitter End’ on Bleecker Street, New York City.
