Sari Schorr – THE FIRST LADY OF ROCK/BLUES

Sari’s “overnight” success comes after years trudging the rugged road of life of the hard-working Blues woman. From her humble beginnings, working the music scene in the legendary fierce South Bronx of New York and on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, to live performances at such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, alongside TV shows like Conan O’Brian.

New York-based Sari Schorr initially gained prominence throughout the blues world after several years of touring the US and Europe with Blues legend, Joe Louis Walker and renowned guitarist, Popa Chubby. Schorr was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

In Memphis in January 2015, a chance meeting with legendary record producer Mike Vernon (Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Peter Green) moved Sari’s career in a more exciting direction. Within 5 minutes of hearing Sari sing he offered to produce Sari’s debut record. Through Mike’s connection Sari was immediately signed to the UK’s leading Rock/Blues label – Manhaton Records.

Sari has produced 2 albums, her debut album “A Force Of Nature” and now “Never Say Never”. Never Say Never was mixed in Atlanta Georgia by highly regarded producer Tom Tapley( Elton John, Blackberry Smoke, Counting Crows) Both albums have received universal critical acclaim for her blustery vocals and emotionally-charged performances.

In the last 4 years Sari formed her own band, and toured extensively throughout the USA & Europe. Sari has been described by many music pundits as a modern-day hybrid of Janis Joplin and Tina Turner – a red-hot rock singer who radiates emotional intensity, connects with and inspires her audiences, and leaves a lasting impression that’s larger than life. In a review of her latest album, one respected music wrote “You could very easily run out of superlatives to describe what must be one of the best female voices about right now.”

Book a table for pre-concert dining

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 info@acapela.co.uk

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.
