Fighting in the Streets

Fighting In The Streets is a fiery band of musicians who utilize jazz improvisation, funky grooves, and smooth showmanship through video game music. We play songs from Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Street Fighter 2, Mega Man, Castlevania, and more. The goal of the band is to play music we have listened to subconsciously as kids and bring it to life with new arrangements and pure RAW energy.

"Fighting in the Streets" was created by Alex Lopez and Norman Edwards in the fall of 2009. The two met while studying at Manhattan School of Music and quickly gravitated towards each others musical personalities. The pair soon realized that they also shared a passion for the music of video games and envisioned performing the music live.
