Young British guitarists Mikhail Asanovic and Jake Wright, together known as The Showhawk Duo, have dazzled audiences worldwide with their spectacular approach to playing the guitar.

Their playing style has broken down barriers between acoustic and electronic music. They have re-thought traditional musical structure creating their own all-encompassing genre.

 

Whether playing old-school trance classics or modern funky house, their live show knows no boundaries and will leave you amazed. Mik is a classically trained guitarist having studied at Manchester's RNCM.

Jake is an electric junkie and grew up playing in rock and metal bands. Mik's classical foundation shines through in the music with Jake's raw percussive approach always keeping the crowd moving. Together they create a truly unique and impressive sound, and have turned many "acoustic" nights into a thumping rave.

 

Together, they started out as buskers and have since gone on to play all over the globe. They have appeared on BBC Radio 1 on the Nick Grimshaw’s Breakfast Show, BBC radio Bristol, they have performed at most of the UK's large festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Somersault, Lost Village, Boomtown, Kendal Calling, Bournemouth 7's, and Electric Picnic. They played sell-out shows on their 2015 UK tour and preparations are now being made for 2016. They had five star reviews and sell out shows at Edinburgh Fringe. International performances include shows in the Seychelles, club tours in Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands and a residency at Pacha in Ibiza. This dazzling duo are sure to rock your socks off
