Wir spielen Songs von John Cougar Mellencamp
the music of pop/rock legend John Mellencamp, one of the most influential artists of the 80s and 90s rock era. His catchy, populist brand of “heartland rock,” eschewing synthesizers and other artificial sounds in favor of authentic instrumentation, documents the joys and struggles of ordinary, working-class people seeking to make their way, and consistently brings the fresh air of common experience to the typically glamour-addled world of popular music.
After Klein introduced Teutsch to Mellencamp’s vast repertoire along with several other artists performing in similar music styles, they realized that this was a genre largely untapped in the local music scene. They set out to bring this American southern-style country rock/pop to the local masses and together founded American Fool in early 2012.
Mixing acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and accordion with the usual classic rock instrumentation and melding the essence of American rock with their tremendous energy and ability to entertain audiences of all ages, American Fool combines the very best of folk, rock, pop and country while captivating audiences with their sincerity and power.
