Know Your MAG – Super Guitar Bros

Our next group on Know Your Mag features a music style that is a little different from what we’re used to hearing at MAGFest. Super Guitar Bros is an acoustic guitar duo with a unique take on game music. While Steve Poissant and Sam Griffin may not be actual brothers, they are a talented music duo that have been producing some great videogame music remixes.

Steve Poissant performs on a Steel String Guitar and Sam Griffin performs on Nylon String Guitar, creating a very chilled out and mellow set of game music arrangements. Their concerts tend to have simple set ups. Just the two guitarists sitting on their chairs and performing for the audience. Nothing flashy or over-the-top. Simply well arranged acoustic guitar pieces being played by two friends. Their arrangements cover a wide field of game franchises, but tend to focus on the older, more well known game tunes. They’ve covered music from Final Fantasy, Chrono Cross, Ninja Gaiden, Sonic the Hedgehog, and (of course) the Super Mario Bros franchise.

Back in October of 2013 they released their first full album on Bandcamp, simply titled Super Guitar Bros. The album contains many of the covers I’ve mentioned above. They also have a Youtube channel featuring many of their other arrangements. This year they will be one of the featured groups at MAGFest 13. We’ll update with the performance times of the all the performers when they are released. Make sure you register for MAG if you haven’t done so already.
