Duke Ellington performed regularly here, and Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday both launched their careers at the venue’s amateur night. You can say that the Apollo Theater was the ‘Motown’ before Motown. Today, the theater stands as an artifact on the bustling 125th street.

Harlem, New York  I was here accross the street from the Apollo trying to hail a taxi when the Rodney King riots started in LA.
