A heartwarming, musical tribute to the great U.S. singer-songwriters of the late 60’s and early 70’s, featuring beautiful songs from James Taylor, Carole King, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Don Mclean, Crosby, Stills & Nash, America, Carly Simon and more! Many of their timeless classic songs, from this special era, will be brought to life by a band of top musicians, along with an occasional intimate nostalgic narrative. The band is fronted by Paul Prem Nadama and Jessica Lee Morgan.
Paul Prem Nadama is perhaps better known in the world of TV comedy as Paul Wheeler, Director of award-winning TV shows such as ‘Live at the Apollo’ and ‘Have I got News for You’. So with ‘Fire & Rain & American Pie‘ it could be said he is bringing ‘Have I got Tunes for you!’ to a live stage show where Paul pays homage to many of his teenage musical inspirations.
Paul is an accomplished guitarist and singer-songwriter playing at intimate venues around UK and Europe. Recent appearances include the Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe and many festivals with many bands of various musical styles. His relaxed acoustic soul and contemporary folk style has often been compared to James Taylor and Paul Simon; combined with his finger-picking guitar techniques and soft voice which touches the hearts of many people on any size stage.
Jessica Lee Morgan is a whole-hearted singer-songwriter who doesn’t beat about the bush. Jessica was raised on rock and folk by her parents, singer Mary Hopkin (‘Those Were The Days’) and record producer and musician Tony Visconti (Bowie, Bolan, Strawbs, Ralph McTell and more). She performs her own forthright songs with acoustic guitar and percussion strapped to her army boots. Jessica is a regular with her father’s Bowie supergroup Holy Holy and has recently supported The Blow Monkeys and Robyn Hitchcock.
Christian Thomas currently plays bass with Jessica but has played in various bands for the last 25 years. He is a recording engineer and works regularly with Jessica and her mother, Mary, and with many others in the past.
Vikas Botsford, has been a session keyboard player for many artists and a regular on the London music scene since the mid-seventies. He appears regularly with World-renowned New-age singer-songwriter Miten.

Book a table for pre-concert dining
Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.
Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.
Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left. Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.
If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!
PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.
Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue.
- All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
- Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
- Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
- If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN 7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
