Acoustic Fight
Acoustic Fight is the cover band for people who don’t like cover bands. And all the others. With their ingenious mix of music, protest and irony, Acoustic Fight sustainably convince their audience and thus provide movement in head and legs all over the place.
Stylistically rooted between rock, reggae and pop, Pouya Nemati, Thomas Burckhardt and Toni Düll make world music in the best sense. The style-mix of Acoustic Fight convinces immediately and works on big stages as well as in small clubs. Interaction and dialogue with the audience play a central role.
In addition to newly arranged world hits by Bob Marley, The Police, Rage Against The Machine or Tom Waits, the three guys of Acoustic Fight also surprise again and again with jewels from the underground and satirical pearls. No chance for a bad mood!
