Afishnamedmo was founded in 2004 by four musicians from south-west Germany, who thought normal music was too normal. With the aim of taking themselves to their own limits, saxophonist Felix Fritsche, bassist Markus Vieweg, keyboardist Steffen Schlo¨sser and drummer Daniel Go¨tz wrote their own songs and played a few gigs. By fortunate coincidence, Markus met female singer Lena Scheel only half a year later, and a band somewhere between instumental and vocal music arose. The success of this constellation was outstanding! Afishnamedmo quickly played gigs all over Germany also including unusual venues and festivals for a jazz band. At the German competition "Jugend Jazzt" the newcomers won the first prize, which finally established them as successful wanderers between two worlds. Shortly after, their first CD "New Shoes" was produced and released. In 2007, the band took a break in consequence of personal rearrangement, Lena and Steffen left the band. After about one and a half year of stage abstinence it became clear that the music world needed more of Afishnamedmo! This is why new songs were written and unique female singer Jana Hemmer and unbelievable keyboardist Flo Stone were added to the band lineup to rock the stage again!
