Omar Apollo – Live on the Voyager Tour 2019

May 29 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us in the lobby at 7:15pm for a complimentary cider tasting by The Boston Beer Company!

Critic favorite Omar Apollo is a 21-year old, first generation Mexican-American singer from Indiana, who writes and records his own mix of jazz, R&B, funk, alternative, soul, and pop music. Indie barometer Pitchfork praises his “seductive falsetto… clever production touches… bedroom pop and throwback soul.”

His parents moved to the US to give their kids a better life and the opportunity to go to college; however, Omar always knew this route wasn’t meant for him. He began playing guitar at 12 years old, but quit soon after because he got bored of only playing in church. At age 18, Omar began listening to new styles of music and fell in love with the guitar again. His biggest influences are Benny Sings, D’angelo, Los Panchos, John Mayer, Elliott Smith, Cuco Sánchez, Paul Simon, Gary Numan, and João Gilberto. Omar’s debut EP, Stereo, features songs in both English and Spanish.
