Description

Come experience the tribute to Fats Waller and the black musicians of the 1920s and 1930s! “B2wins” will be coming to ISU as part of the Performing Arts Series on March 5th, 2024, at 7:30 in Tilson Auditorium and a Pre-Show event at 6:30 pm.

Fun loving Twin brothers present "Top 40 From the Last 40." Four decades of the music you know and love with a unique twist. This unforgettable, engaging show is for all ages and features one-of-a-kind renditions of everything from Sinatra to Ed Sheeran, Louis Armstrong to Dua Lipa, Michael Jackson to Daft Punk, Leonard Cohen to Nirvana. Get ready to sing, dance, laugh and take your soul on a feel-good ride through the chart-topping hits of American Music.

"We are over the moon about the B2wins concert... their unscripted onstage banter was so authentic, heartfelt, positive, and at times hilarious that the entire evening was a non-stop marvel. Without even trying to be, the B2wins are spectacular ambassadors across race, national origin, music genres, and even age—we had audience members from 5 years old to 85... Without hesitation, I would say this is THE show professional music presenters are, or should be, looking for at this particular time in our country’s evolution."
- Tassel Performing Arts Center | 30yr Presenter

Pronounced B-Twins, this high energy entertainment group continues to captivate audiences worldwide with its unique renditions of crowd favorites and engaging, uplifting live show that targets the masses. Led by charismatic Twin brothers from Brazil, they combine a plethora of genres into a feel-good performance that is equal parts rock concert, dance party, jam session and vacation for the soul.

Growing up in the violent, impoverished slums of Rio De Janeiro, the Twins began playing classical music on violins their father handmade. They used music as an escape from their reality and began teaching others in their neighborhood to do the same. After being featured on National Public Radio, the Twins were invited to the US on full ride music scholarships in 2008.

"B2wins are two of the most genuine, talented, and creative musicians I have come across in my 25+ years of presenting artists."
- Dubuque Heritage Center

After performing over 1,000 shows around the world the past decade, the B2wins continue to cultivate a loyal fan base wherever they perform. From hip-hop heads to jazz aficionados, pop enthusiasts and ravers, rockers to reggae fans, all find common ground together with the B2wins. Using music as the tool, the B2wins are on a mission to make the world smile.
