The Steadies hail from Saskatoon, and they were playing at Vancouver's Guilt & Co. on Saturday (December 15) when the New Zealand-born Apa joined them onstage. According to TMZ, Apa frequently goes to the bar to see live music, since Riverdale films nearby.
Video footage shows Apa playing a couple of funky tunes with the Steadies, including some pretty impressive wah-wah soloing and lots of John Mayer-esque guitar face. He was also wearing a truly ridiculous jacket and sunglasses, which can be seen above.
Apa wrote on Instagram, "funky as fuuuuu. Let's do that again please lads."
As the Georgia Straight points out, the actor has played onstage with a few bands over the last couple years in Vancouver.
All of this might not come as a surprise to hardcore Archie fans, since Apa has been known to post some wanky webcam videos of his guitar chops.
Hey it's Archie & The Steadies! An amazing show @guiltandcompany was capped off by @KJapa joining us and ripping funky jams on guitar all night!
