Stars such as Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Michael Jackson, and Lauryn Hill got their start at this theater, built in 1913. After a period of disuse and abuse, the theater was acquired by the state of New York in 1991 and is currently undergoing renovations. One of the most popular tourist destinations in the city, a tour can be had for not much more than the cost of a movie, and the Apollo still hosts its world-famous Amateur Night on Wednesdays at 7:30pm.

Event Review: Pino Daniele
Italian music legend Pino Daniele returns for the second time in a US tour, for three events produced by Massimo Gallotta Productions, after the success of 2009, with Rachel Z (piano), Omar Hakim (drums), Gianluca Podio (keyboards), Solomon Dorsey (bass).
Born in Naples, Italy on March 19, 1955, self-taught guitarist Pino Daniele recorded his first album at the age of 22. From the beginning of his career, it was clear that his passion lay in rock and blues. Greatly influenced by his own cultural background, his music was a successful fusion of tradition and modernity.
His solo debut, Terra Mia, sung in Neapolitan, was the first example of what Daniele called "taramblù," a combination of tarantella, rhumba, and blues. In 1979 his self-titled sophomore record was released, followed by Nero a Metà in 1980, and that same year Daniele was invited to open for reggae superstar Bob Marley for his show in Milan. During the next few years the artist continued exploring his various Mediterranean, African, and Western inspirations-found in albums like Common Ground, a collaboration with American folk singer Richie Havens, and the Middle Eastern-influenced Bonne Soirée-as well as writing soundtracks for films by Massimo Troisi.
In 1989 Daniele took a step toward greater commercial success with the release of the pop record Mascalzone Latino, followed by another deluge of albums, including 1991's Un Uomo in Blues, 1993's Che Dio Ti Benedica (which had two tracks produced by Chick Corea), 1995's Non Calpestare I Fiori Nel Deserto, 1997's Dimmi Cosa Succede Sulla Terra, and 2000's Medina.
Two years later the singer teamed up with fellow Italian stars Francesco DeGregori, Ron, and Fiorella Mannoia. In 2005 Daniele released Iguana Café, another studio record. Between 2005 and 2010, Daniele released three more studio albums: Il Mio Nome è Pino Daniele e Vivo Qui, Ricomincio da 30, and Electric Jam. In 2010, Daniele released his 13th studio album, Boogie Boogie Man and on March 20th of this year new album La Grande Madre came out.
On June 24, 2011, in Salerno, Italy, Pino Daniele performed side by side with the English superstar Eric Clapton in a sold out show at the Stadio di Cava de' Tirreni.
What better place for Moz and his fans (people who think they have problems) to congregate than Harlem's APOLLO THEATER, an outlet created by/for the disenfranchised and subaltern. He kicked out some new jams, he kicked out some old jams, and he damn near looked happy. But where was Steve Harvey for the introduction? More »
