Photos of Sparkling Apple at East Delta Hall, most of which were taken by Lisa Freakrock on September 24, 2016, at the wedding of Budd Marr (who used to play bass for Sweeney Todd) and Joanne Stern. Several musicians were invited to share the stage, including Elio Martelli, Mike Kelly, Dave Vidal, Doug and the Slugs, the Shindiggers and many luminaries of the live music scene!

Sparkling Apple Jam

AppleJamrREVISED

New for 2014! Sparkling Apple will be hosting the Freakrock Jam at the Point Pub in Port Moody on Wednesday, February 5th., and all jammers and fans are invited to attend — admission is absolutely FREE! At the outset, we must advise you that Art the Fart the Heavy Metal Kid will be unable to attend this event due to the fact that he is undergoing solar rehabilitation in sunnier climes, but in his place we have deputized two worthy substitutes. For this jam, Kevin Stuart Swain will be playing lead guitar, and we will be joined on bass by former Idle Eyes bassist, Larry Pardue. On the songs where the inimitable Captain Maniac is out front doing lead vocals in his unique song stylings, the amazing Kelly Stodola will be on lead drums. Join us, won’t you, for a wild midweek party in Downtown Port Moody!
