Amateur Night at the Apollo is live entertainment with a history. This weekly talent competition began in 1934 and within months became a leading showcase for emerging performers. Among its early winners was a 15-year-old Ella Fitzgerald. Since then the series has launched the careers of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Lauryn Hill.
Today Amateur Night attracts performers and audiences from around the world. Audience members, known for their toughness and expectation that contestants "be good or be gone," gleefully choose the winners.

BAMcafé Live is a free weekly performance series, featuring a mix of live music in a bar and lounge space.

Duncan Sheik, Billy Martin, Survival Soundz, Tracie Morris, and Carl Hancock Rux are among the series' alums.
This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.
It Will All Work Out takes stories from Chris Wells' upcoming memoir, mixes them with funny original songs, and tops it all off with fabulous, colorful, and outrageous outfits. Expect a night of high energy, queer fun, and deep feeling with a smokin' hot band and a couple sexy backup dancers.
