”Apicella is a lithe, swinging guitarist with an affinity for the contrasting styles of both Grant Green and Wes Montgomery...An all-around impressive debut by a guitarist of substance.” MARK GARDNER, Jazz Journal Composer and guitarist Charlie Apicella counts Grant Green, Sonny Stitt, Charlie Parker, and Wes Montgomery as his primary influences. He has been studying improvisation and composition with his mentor Dave Stryker for ten years, and with organ legend Dr. Lonnie Smith since 2008.

IRON CITY has headlined NYC jazz clubs The Iridium, Fat Cat, Trumpet's, Cecil's, and Northeast venues The Iron Horse, Bishop's Lounge, The Basement, and Revolution Hall.


CHARLIE APICELLA and IRON CITY are keeping the flame alive in the legacy of the funky organ trio. With their soulful retro sound, their mission is to keep the people's feet tappin', heads bobbin', and groove. Powered by the compelling original tunes of guitarist Apicella, IRON CITY strives to break new ground while also drawing inspiration from the masters.
