Hamilton's Finest Funk Rock Band
The band name Apollo is derived from the Greek and Roman sun-god, patron of music and poetry.
Apollo is an original band whose sound can be described as an interesting hybrid of rock, jazz, funk and hip-hop. This four piece is on a mission to ascend the spheres of musical awareness by tapping the energy of spontaneous improvisation. The bands philosophy is to present music that delves into an exploration of vibe and pulse. An Apollo live show has been described as a sonic train ride that journeys through the realms of musical possibility.

Aiming for the zone
extract from an article by Steve Scott, Waikato Times, Tempo House and Lifestyle magazine April 2005
.........Hamilton band Apollo is making in-roads into the mainstream with it's spontaneous approach to jazz and '70s inspired fusion.
......When performing, Nathan explained the band aimed for the 'zone'.
Sometimes the band gets into a zone and it's like something is working through you. That's what spontaneity and improvisation does for us. It creates majic, an amazing feeling and it becomes our creative music."
