Founded in 2006 as the band „Laut Kinski“, 7 musicians in the age of 18 – 26 years came together to distribute their music from their home base Mannheim. From their roots which lie in ska, reggae and rock, the music is developed by a variety of influences – from Latin, Funk and jazz to dub, dancehall and electro – which were combined to create an unusual Mix of german speaking rap and heavy offbeat Instrumental parts

A mixture of groovy UkuleleRockSongs and heavy philosophical conclusions. Since 2010 Samuel Beck is working on his project SAMUEL THE UKULELEPREACHER, a new combination of language, drama and music, in which he presents his philosophical views. The first performances was in 2011, at that time exclusively alone or as a duo with bass player Gero Kunisch. In his current program „Narrenmund“ Samuel plays three different characters, resulting in an original performance between cabaret and songwriter. Usually such contents are presented quiet and meek, but here you get them roared right into your face, with a vehemence and intelligence which will take your breath away. With his own backing tracks recorded or his band, the whole show becomes more towards a rock concert. Quiet, lyrical passages alternate with voiced soul and hard rock parts, always supported by a groovy rhythm.
