Black Violin

Subscription Series Show- Open to the Public

Saturday, April 18, 2015 - 7:30 pm

Its hard to think pf another African-American violin player to make their mark in popular music, so classically trained South Florida twosome, Wilner Wil B Baptiste and Kevin Kev Marcus Sylvester, who go by the name Black Violin are a welcome revelation for their ability to meld highbrow and pop culture, "Brandenburg" and "breakdown" into a single genre-busting act. Live they are often accompanied by their crack band, featuring ace turntable whiz DJTK (Dwayne Dayal), drummer Beatdown (Jermaine McQueen) and cellist Joe Cello (Joseph Valbrun). Watch for their new CD 'Classically Trained'. Black Violin dazzled at the presidential inauguration. SPONSORED BY: The Dr. Roger & Beth Neist Family, Barbara Berg Jensen & HY-VEE
