The best way to start a weekend is with an evening of music, what made this evening even better is the fact that we had the opportunity to support a new independent venue. The Apple Tree also known as The Lambrettas Bar is at the beginning of it’s journey to becoming a respected independent venue in the South West music, one where you will be guaranteed a night of amazing music. Tonight the bar welcomed a well-known artist to us at Off the Hook Music in the form of Alex Ohm, who we’ve been waiting to watch for some time.
Alex was the sole act on show tonight but that didn’t mean a lack of entertainment as he played all night long, performing two sessions with a half an hour gap during the set. Alex set the mood with an array of original material which highlighted the rustic and polished vocals he possesses. He followed up his own material which showed off his song writing skills with cover songs which lit up the dance floor, especially for two enthusiastic ladies who must have worn through the soles of their shoes in the process of enjoying songs like ‘Oh sit down’, which they refused to do.
Steve joined Alex mid-way through the first set and he brought his electric guitar which provided a nice contrast and gave added layers to the songs Alex was playing. The way the acoustic guitar blended with the electric guitar was a marriage in musical heaven, you had the honest raw performance from Alex’s vocal and the guitar with a pinch of spice that lit up your ears from the electric notes.
If you want an atmosphere which is fun and full of friendship The Apple Tree is a place you need to put on your venue list and Alex delivered on the promise we had of this smooth singer songwriter.
