The Deadbeat Apostles
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. Emerging from the mean badlands of Oxford’s Kennington delta, 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."
