Strawberry Swing is the first acknowledged Coldplay tribute band in the middle east. They received a tweet from the official Coldplay’s twitter account expressing how they would love to come to Egypt and inviting people to attend Strawberry Swing’s first show.
It all started when Abdelrhman Sherief came up with the idea of covering for Coldplay as he was obsessed with their music, spirit, and the message they’re trying to deliver.
So he and MishMish ((Mohamed Tarek Alkhaleel)) decided to make this into an actual band and play live to spread the Coldplay spirit and share it with their fans in Egypt.

These two brothers Waleed and Basem grew up in the 90s whilst the emerging sound of grunge coming out of the city of Seattle. The likes of Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, Alice in Chains and of course the pioneers of the grunge scene, Nirvana.
On drums and bass guitar, they have always jammed to Nirvana songs since they were young, and have always wanted to form a tribute band for there idols – but they never found a passionate third member to join on vocals and guitar.
Ahmed Tawfik, on lead vocals and guitar, joined the two brothers, and the band is finally here presenting their Nirvana tribute show for all Kurt Cobain’s fans in Egypt.
Many grunge rock tribute nights are to come, Seattle Band promises to bring the Seattle sound to Cairo.
