Cairo Knife Fight
From the Promoter
CAIRO KNIFE FIGHT
Cairo Knife Fight is Nick Gaffaney, a man who has drummed his way around the place for many of New Zealand’s leading songwriters, and George Pajon Jr., a Grammy award winning songwriter and guitarist who has worked with some of the biggest names in the international music business including Black Eyed Peas, Fergie (2), Carlos Santana, Macy Gray, John Legend, Sting, Nas and Damian Marley. Forming as a duo in 2009 Cairo Knife Fight try to redefine what two musicians can create live with Nick combining the responsibilities of playing drums, keyboard bass, creating live loops and lead vocals with George’s seemingly limitless guitar soundscapes and incendiary riffs. The bands long history of dedication to pushing the boundaries of music video content has also seen them achieve viral status with their 2014 single Rezlord being viewed 11.7 million times as of May 2017.
Heavy, droning grooves interspersed with floating melodies and feedback-drenched walls of sound.
