    Five tactful rascals who, despite their high-speed expeditions through the worlds of percussion instruments, neither shock nor scare their audiences. On the contrary: they are as straight as the drumsticks they use.
    Their mission: beat entertainment at the highest level. Their tools: seven drums, ten rocket-speed sticks and humour at the ready. Not to mention the undivided attention and ecstatic enthusiasm of any audience. Daring groove artistry and Chaplinesque slapstick choreography make every beat dropped by this band a bomb-proof coup. It is the work of complete pros: virtuous drummers and thrilling entertainers all in one. Five humorous born musicians who, after every surprise delivered, already have the next trick up their sleeve. One look in their file will show that these Mafiosi from the Mannheim harbour district of Jungbusch abandoned petty crime long ago. They have been playing their charm and their drumsticks at countless events for five years. They won the 2015 Baden-Württemberg Kleinkunstpreis and entertained millions of TV viewers on the final of the RTL show Die Puppenstars and collaborated with the artist Joris on the Echo Show 2016. Whoever the audience, be they from the world of politics (Federal Ministry for Economy), industry (BASF, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Otto), culture (lit.Cologne, New Pop Festival) or the media (SWR, Arte, RTL), they all say at the end: mission accomplished!
