“The Deadbeat Apostles are the place where The Grand Ol’ Oprey meets Harlem Apollo” Nightshift Magazine.
Ladies and Gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, the music of the Deadbeat Apostles. The Deadbeat Apostles play a unique blend of country soul, barrelhouse R’n’B and down home rock and roll. Featuring the sharpest dressed vocal duo this side of Nashville alongside the authentic guitar sound of the Cumnor backwoods and the dangerous rhythms of the Iffley swamplands, this bunch of ruined and desperate humanity journey far and wide to bring you their very own Travellin’ Riverside Blues.
Their debut album Day of the Deadbeats chandeliers off of gutsy crescendos and garage band guitars, with early-Nashville dripping from the strings. If you haven’t seen them live yet you’re in for a treat with Oxford’s Nightshift Magazine stating they have "a well-earned reputation as one of the best live bands in Oxford."
Ladies and Gentlemen – we give you The Deadbeat Apostles - Mr Michael Ginger, Ms Michelle Mayes, Mr Garry Richardson, Mr Hugh Garrety and Mr Alex Ogg.
“Country soul is just coming right through. The vocals sound stunning .I love that they’ve got such a hard rocking edge but the absolute core is laid back and it does shoot right through to the soul. Their vocals really sore and they’re so on sync it’s pretty special stuff. As flag bearers for the local music community goes they’re right up at the top. I absolutely love these guys”. BBC Oxford
