Stringfever are not a string quartet – or at least, not as you know one. With their striking electric instruments Giles, Ralph, Neal & Graham Broadbent (yes they really are from the same family) will provide you with a rollercoaster ride of musical entertainment combining unrelenting energy, humour and audience interaction with great musical skills.
Their show includes highly original numbers as ‘the history of music in 5 minutes’ a high-paced romp through time from Mozart to Metallica. They also provide an amazing display of musical gymnastics in their very own version of Ravel’s Bolero – with the whole group playing on one cello at the same time.

„Stringfever produced an outstanding performance combining obvious musical accomplishment and clever audience awareness with quick repartee. We had designed the evening around the build up to the ‘big band’ but in all conversations afterwards it became clear that it was in fact Stringfever that had made the biggest impression on the guests and most importantly on my client „
