City Kids Feel The Beat City-Kids Feel-The-Beat Ulm Extra power, a big heart and for sure lots of fun – that’s how City Kids Feel The Beat mix their sound since they formed in August 2011. Sven Simmendinger (Vocals), Thomas Pusch (Guitar), Andreas Gelz (Guitar), Tim Schwöbel (Bass) und Dominik Drossart (Drums) have been a big part of the lively music scene of their hometown Ulm for quite a while. The five guys are connected through these roots in the local punk- and hardcore scene and grew to become friends. And this is exactly where City Kids Feel The Beat are at home: in between bands like A Day To Remember and Four Year Strong they found their driving beat. You won’t find one still foot on a CKFTB show: CKFTB stands for City Kids Feel The Beat and this band means fun, friendship and freedom. In the South of Germany they are already well known and played the Mini- Rock- Festival (about 10.000 visitors in 2014) in Horb am Neckar with bands like Anti- Flag, Zebrahead, Trailerpark and Deez Nuts as their biggest show to date. International stage air is nothing new to the five City Kids either: in March 2014 they played their first show abroad in no lesser city than the Irish music- capital Dublin. But also off- stage Sven manages to give every song the certain CKFTB sound with his characteristic vocals. Their cover of Lady Gaga’s „Applause“ reached over 10.000 clicks on YouTube in less than a week! In early September 2014 the City Kids finally recorded their first EP and here Dominik and Tim demonstrate how pressingly light the rhythm- instruments in punkrock can be off- stage. Additionally, the driving interaction of Thomas’ and Andreas’ guitars add the right amount of zest. Sven’s unique and strong vocals, that often remind of early records of the Pop- Punk- kings Blink 182, round off the CKFTB sound through his wide range and vocal presence – just right for the next party or simply hanging out with friends!
