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. Whether

playing old-school trance classics or modern funky house, their live show knows no boundaries

and will leave you amazed.

Mik is a classical guitarist at heart, having studied at Manchester’s RNCM whereas 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, they did a 40 minute

live broadcast for the LAD Bible, BBC radio Bristol, they have performed at most of the UK’s

large festivals including Main Stage at Bestival, Glastonbury, Isle of Wight Festival, Secret

Garden Party, Wilderness, Somersault, Lost Village, Boomtown and more. They played sell-out

shows on their 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 UK tours, and headlined The O2 Forum in the

most recent. They had five star reviews and an official sell out show at Edinburgh Fringe.

International performances include F1 Grand Prix in Singapore, Seychelles, club tours in Spain,

Switzerland and the Netherlands and a 20 – date residency at Pacha in Ibiza.
