Phoenix Morby started playing guitar some 10 years ago and he used to love to ROCK \m/! But his world changed the first time he heard Kris Kristofferson singing out on ‘Me and Bobby Mcgee’. The story and the visions it painted in his head came together like watching an artist paint on canvas. He was hooked.
Five years ago Phoenix started taking pen to paper and trying to tell his own stories, his own little moments in time transformed into song. He relived painful memories, fun times, lost loves and much more as he tried to paint the same pictures in his mind as Kris did for him all those years ago.
His first EP was released in 2018 and is 5 years of finding and reliving the best and worst stories from his life.
Derby Based Singer/Songwriter Kezia Gill, has been singing professionally for over 10 years. A delicious mix of Irish and country influence, her sound is completely unique. Kezia plays all over the country, not only performing her own material, but bringing her own vocal style to a variety of classic covers; With her unique vocal style, and skilled acoustic guitar playing, she makes every song her own.
2017 saw the official release of her self titled Album “Kezia”. It received support from BBC Introducing and the title track “House of cards” reached no 22 in the line dance charts.
2018 was an extremely successful year, seeing Kezia win Female Vocalist of the year at the CCN Awards, and take home the Peoples Choice Award for Soloist of the year at the BCMA Awards. 2019 already looks to be her best year yet, kicking off with a tour in Australia, including the Tamworth Country Music Festival, and a trip to Nashville planned for later in the year., as well as numerous festival appearances yet to be announced. With new music and videos scheduled for release in the next few months, Kezia’s success shows no sign of slowing down.
“Kezia Gill is one of the most exciting artists to emerge on the British Country Scene in recent years, and I’m sure we will be hearing much more from this very talented young lady“ – B J Thomas, CEO British CMA
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.
