    The Show
    A night with the Magnets showcases the sheer versatility of a cappella performance. From Rat Pack to Rock Band, Nashville to Nightclub, The Magnets own each genre, effortlessly switching scene with their trademark inventive choreography and lashings of audience engaging charm. Current highlights include crowd-pleasing classics Feelin’ Good, Minnie the Moocher and Jolene, Sam Smith’s beautiful Lay Me Down, and a brilliant mash-up of the Jackson 5’s Can You Feel It and Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake. If that’s not enough, are you ready for Aqua’s Barbie Girl in eight different musical styles?

    From the Beginning
    From modest student beginnings as street performers in Covent Garden, The Magnets have had the joy of introducing millions to a cappella music for the first time in concert, on radio and TV. Their richly varied career has seen them sign a major record deal with EMI, release four albums, support superstars such as Tom Jones, Blondie and Bryan Adams, and play private shows for supermodels, heads of state and royalty. The Magnets pivotal role in the UK a cappella scene was recently acknowledged with a special feature on Gareth Malone’s The Choir, and the band are currently enjoying the upsurge in interest in a cappella music around the Pitch Perfect movies and new groups such as Pentatonix. This wave is enabling the group to take their music further afield than ever, touring Australasia, India, China regular in recent years.

The show has now been staged over 1,000 times, making it one of the most-performed German cabaret shows. It is currently being performed by artists including Dieter Hallervorden. The press described it as “one of the best of the past decade” (Bonner Generalanzeiger) and a successful blend of high artistic standards and great entertainment. A book inspired by the show spent several months in the bestseller charts. Koczwara points out the unintentionally humorous aspects of Germany’s legal system, which makes him very popular with audiences. He has won the Salzburger Stier, a satire award, and the Silver Rose of Monaco for his comedy creations. He lives in Schwäbisch Gmünd with his wife and two children.
