Jason Steele and Joanne

There is a great tradition of magicians turning a childhood enthusiasm into a professional career. Jason Steele did just that and after he appeared on TV’s Give Your Mate A Break he was soon working for celebrity audiences as well as delighting many mere mortals around the world.

Jason was joined by Joanna in 2002 combining her extensive dance and choreography skills with Jason’s mystifying magic.

They can adapt their shows to most audiences and venues: their stage show can be done entirely to music with no need for speech when there are no English speakers present; and when there’s no room for big illusions, Jason’s close up routines are first rate fun.

Please watch the video for just a taste of their award winning performance.

Jay McGee

A truly larger than life performance is what you get from the guy who has been dubbed '120 kilos of all round good clean fun'. This is Jay McGee who will treat you to a solid hour of silliness, daft stories, some fantastic vocal impressions and seriously good singing.

Jay can be a bit saucy but never ever blue, so his show suits a really wide range of audiences. He’s equally at home in RAF bases, High Army Balls, cruises, theatres, and holiday parks both in the UK and abroad.

Jay can be seen in his own show, but he is also the lead singer and front comedy man for the famous 60’s group The Rockin Berries, remember “He’s In Town” and “Poor Man's Son”? The Rockin Berries are a fast moving high energy comedy show band who have been at the top of their profession for the last 40 years. One of the few remaining 60’s groups with an original member!! And still voted one of the top show bands in the UK!

I will provide an assortment of miniature miracles presented in a professional and entertaining style. Guaranteed amazement! My shows are suitable for all kinds of special events from weddings to anniversaries, house warming parties, family celebrations, and so on.

The Jerry Lee Lewis Story

Jerry Lee Lewis was a music legend but not so many people know the man behind the music. Peter Gill portrays the manic performance style of the self-styled Killer while shedding some light on his outrageous lifestyle. This show charts the meteoric rise and dramatic fall of the first wild man of rock!

Peter’s dynamic show features all the iconic songs you would expect: Whole Lotta Shakin’, It’ll Be Me, Chantilly Lace and, of course, Great Ball Of Fire. So you’ll get a theatrical experience which is really worth watching as well as some great music played by Peter and his excellent band.

All this available for your venue.

This is what audience members have said:
'You are clearly a brilliant musician, and have got The Killer off to a tee!'
'I was hoping it would be a good show – it wasn’t – it was brilliant!'

The Jive Aces

The Jive Aces are the UK’s top Jive & Swing band. Together for over a decade, this extremely popular six piece group have performed at thousands of festivals, theatres and events throughout the UK, Europe and worldwide, 30 countries in all. The Jive Aces are renowned for their high energy Jump Jive music - the exciting sound where Swing meets Rock ‘n Roll.

With their bright stage suits, wild stage show, irresistible humour and sheer professionalism, the Jive Aces will quickly get any audience on their feet - or dancing in their seat! Each and every show is guaranteed to go with a swing! This group of lads were drawn together by their love for a style and music: hot jive that had the beat, energy and enthusiasm of rock ‘n’ roll and the fun and rhythm of big band swing all rolled into one. Their wild, high-energy floorshows are their trademark  — pure entertainment!

For details about the Jive Aces and other excellent bands, please contact Apple County.

Finding just a few words to say about this band is actually quite difficult as they’ve appeared at so many prestigious venues and festivals world-wide. You may very well be impressed by their list of live appearance credits but here’s something unique - JOANovARC are the first all female UK rock band to have their songs featured on ROCKBAND for Xbox 360!

Their covers set is remarkably diverse and they’ll tell you their influences are Motorhead, Metallica, Joan Jett, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, the Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, etc. They set out to represent the strength of women in the world of rock through their musicianship and performance skill.

Book them for a rock set and they’ll blow you away.

Joe Edwards

After extensive residencies on board cruise ships and in hotels in Europe, Joe Edwards recently  completed a season in Greece and is now looking forward to spending some time in the UK.

He’s a talented guitar vocalist who performs with backing tracks and an electric guitar where a lively set is required or he’s great for a stripped down acoustic  set where it’s just Joe’s voice and his atmospheric  acoustic guitar.

With over 200 songs on his list, there’ll be something to please just about anyone, so please take a look at the video and get in touch with Apple County to see how Joe can make your audience happy.

Johnny Tait

Born in London’s Elephant & Castle, Johnny Tait was brought up amongst the Barrow Boys and learnt to make people laugh at a very early age - it was the best way he knew to get himself out of trouble!

From standing street markets to Butlin’s famous Red Coat seemed a natural progression and he’s never looked back. His humour is unashamedly 'old school' and he will happily adapt his comedy set for any audience: young or old, holiday park or theatre, corporate event or military base, working men's club or old folks’ home.

He loves to do the daft stuff, interspersed with stories and poems, with yarns about growing up and growing old, clever stuff to keep his audience chuckling from start to finish.

Latest Comments

Many thanks to our customers who often have great things to say about us. Here are some of them.....

“.....Please can I send the committee’s thanks for all your help during this year’s Somerton Arts Festival. The feedback that we had back from the punters has been excellent. The variety of acts that we booked through you has been great from speakers - Ian Fergusson the audience were thoroughly entertained for two hours and Ian didn’t have a note in sight. Country with Kalibre were very good in the local pub. Motown with Double Soul the harmonies were great. C&W with Yorkie on the Market Fair day went down very well - very entertaining. Our Cabaret on the final evening was a huge success with Jimmy Quinn who stood in at the last minute for the ill Tank Sherman and the Stage Door Johnnies were hilarious and kept a full house entertained. I am more than happy to recommend Apple County for any event.....”
“.....Bridgwater Carnival 2016
Now the dust has (almost) settled on another, very successful Carnival, I felt I should write to express my sincere thanks to all the acts and artistes booked through you this year. I only managed to catch glimpses of each of their performances but, without exception, they were all providing wonderful entertainment for the hundreds of visitors to the town centre, and the large crowds they attracted appeared to be fully absorbed and enjoying every moment.

Please can you pass on my thanks to one and all, they really made the day special and memorable.

Thanks also to you for all your assistance. I look forward to working with you again next year......”
