This fall the Goethe-Instituts in the United States and the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) invite German artists Eddi Hüneke and Tobi Hebbelmann on a PASCH music tour across the USA.

Eddi Hüneke was one of the founders of Germanys most successful pop a-cappella bands, the Wise Guys, who recorded 13 albums and played over 3,000 shows from 1992 until 2017, when they chose to go separate ways. Eddi’s decision to continue writing and performing was received well by many fans - particularly his kids’ piano teacher, Tobi Hebbelmann, who was asked to accompany Eddi on stage. With Tobi on piano, Eddi will perform newly written songs - while also playing the guitar. “After 25 years in an a-cappella band, I was looking for a new challenge. And coordinating my hands with my tongue while playing and singing simultaneously is definitely something to keep me on my toes, so to speak.”

Eddi Hüneke was born in London in 1971 and is looking forward to speaking in his “other mother tongue” for a change during this tour. In recognition of this, several of the songs chosen for the shows in the USA will be performed in English.
