Week Commencing Oct 29 2012: Feliks Tabis
There’s nothing better than some vibrant jazz to create a warm and welcoming environment don’t you think?
Felix Tabis plays some gorgeous Gypsy Jazz and Swing Violin which is perfect for dinner parties, weddings, functions, corporate events, etc.
So please take a look at his video where he’s featured playing with his guitarist and bass player, and bear him in mind when you’re planning a celebration.
Apple County can supply all kinds of jazz, from trad to ultra modern, laid back to steaming and mainstream to avant-garde. Small budget? Choose a solo, duo or trio. More funds available? There are bands of all sizes so why not push the boat out!

Week Commencing August 10, 2015: Fingers On Buzzers
Bring quizzing into the 21st century with this unique mobile interactive set up using wireless buzzers, each with their own funny sound effects. Questions are projected onto large screens and teams compete using knowledge and speed to answer fun packed questions.
Finger On Buzzers has an expert host using a radio mic and remote control to ask questions by text, picture or sound formats across a range of categories which can be tailored to your event. With electronic scoring there’s no need for scrappy bits of paper, pens and wasted time on marking and also eliminates mobile phone cheating!
This is ideal for corporate events, winding down a training seminar, or just plain good fun. All you have to provide is the audience (120 people max.) and some prizes – Clive will do the rest.
Paul Sinha says “This is a brilliant concept … everyone loves a buzzer”. Why not get in touch so we can explain how this can work for you?

This story of an American Legend takes you on a journey through 5 decades and 32 Albums which chart the phenomenal story of Neil Diamond. Fisher Stevens provides an authentic and lovingly crafted tribute to this much loved singer songwriter whose tunes and lyrics mean so much to so many.
Fisher toured UK theatres with a recent production of Streisand & Diamond and has played venues across the UK and Europe with his excellent Neil Diamond show. He can appear with his superb live musicians and backing singers or with his own recorded tracks, so whatever the venue he has a show designed to fit.

Week Commencing March 3 2014: Five Star Swing
Five Star music you'll just love – Swing from Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller through to favourite songs such as Mr Bojangles & Bad Bad Leroy Brown plus foot stomping Blues, Jive & Jazz.
Five Star Swing can be any size from four to seventeen players, featuring at least three multi-instrumental vocalists. They’ve played for BBC TV’s “Children in Need”, “Military Wives” national theatre tour, Blenheim Palace, Chelsea Flower Show, Blackpool Tower Ballroom, etc. so you’ll be getting a very special performance.
This magnificent showband is led by Chris Smith - former composer for Herb Miller (Glenn's brother), BBC Big Band and the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium.
"A celebration of classic Swing!" Telegraph
"They swing like crazy - Superb!" Sheila Tracy (B.B.C.)

Week Commencing August 5 2013: The Flaming Feathers
If you’re looking for some fun on stage then you’ll love The Flaming Feathers. These talented girls provide some vintage style cabaret with their Charleston, Jive, Swing, Tap, Can-Can & Burlesque routines. Their costumes are gorgeous and their shows can be family friendly or add a little spice to an all adult event.
You can choose to book them with an excellent vocalist too.
The Feathers are also happy to mingle with guests offstage wearing their Showgirl outfits – so you can add that all important ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your special occasion.
For more details about adding some glamour without breaking the bank, please contact Apple County.

Week Commencing Dec 17 2012: The Flaming Firemen
So this is the story: a rather different take on the Singing Waiter scenario.
Friends gather for dinner and a fireman, supposedly doing a safety check, bursts into song!
A celebrity is seated next to a complete stranger and completely unbeknown to all but the organiser, she’s a singer too – get the picture?
A novel way to surprise your guests, don’t you think?
We’ve ended this week’s video with a clip of the ‘fireman’ on stage. He’s the excellent tenor David Lawrence who will delight any audience on his own or as part of the Flaming Firemen.

Week Commencing Oct 8 2012: The Flower Power Band
If you believe that nostalgia isn’t what it used to be, then take a look at this week’s feature for a real wallow in the past. The Flower Power Band recreate the sounds of the Summer Of Love and the rest of the 60s & 70s for a kaleidoscopic ride through the best loved tunes of the time.
So if you hanker after the days when outlandish gear was “Groovy Baby” and youth culture was going to transform the world, then you’ll love to dance to their music or immerse yourself in their theatre presentation. Peace and Love man .... Peace and Love!

Week Commencing March 23, 2015: Flying Follies
A brand new show featuring Terrence Price, from the world renowned comedy acrobatic duo Price & McCoy (our feature on July 9, 2012) "Compagnie En Plein Vol".
Terry, Pauline and Yoann combine breathtaking acrobatics with elegance and comedy in this unique show. Superb costumes and immaculate presentation are just what you would expect from this talented combination and, depending on the event and situation, the show can last from 3 to 55 minutes.
How about this? A workshop and show together - the workshop takes place before the show and participants become part of the performance. So a workshop for adults or children and a show for you to enjoy. Please get in touch for more details.

Week Commencing December 1, 2014: Forever Dean
The word cool was coined for this guy! Dean Martin was one of a kind with natural charisma, laid back style and Latin class. He created a comedic character with a penchant for alcohol (apparently all an act).
Forever Dean re-creates the ambience and charm of Dean Martin’s era. William breathes new life into the songs of this fully paid up member of the Rat Pack and you’ll hear some true music classics such as Everybody Loves Somebody (Sometime), Sway and You’re Nobody ‘til Somebody Loves You.
For a relaxed show with easy listening in mind, you’re in the right place, so take a look at the video and contact Apple County for more details.

Week Commencing July 22 2013: Forever In Blue Jeans
This week’s feature plays to sell out theatre audiences across the UK but you have the chance to book them yourself through Apple County.
Forever In Blue Jeans is a terrific 8 piece family show including their excellent 4 piece band. They’ll thrill you with Rock 'N' Roll favourites, authentic Country Music, hits from the 50's through to today featuring Motown Magic and Abba Mania plus many more along the way.
Superlative vocals, stunning costumes and clever choreography make up a show that will send you home singing and wanting more.

Week Commencing December 16 2013: Fragile Sanity
Planning a wedding or any other special occasion can be a joy or a bit stressful to say the least! However, if you choose a band who are very often part of someone’s special day then you know they’ll do their very best to make sure your event is memorable in all the right ways.
Fragile Sanity will do just that and they’ll learn up to 3 requests, including the first dance, if your favourites are not already on their extensive play list. They don’t charge any extra for this as they want you to be as happy as so many of their previous clients.
The band’s vocal harmonies are great and you’ll hear them through their state of the art sound system. They also supply their own atmospheric lighting rig which is adaptable to the size of the venue – their light and sound engineer will see to all the technical stuff.
Please take a look at the video - it’s a wedding compilation - then contact us to find out more about them.
