FT. LAUDERDALE – “Black Violin” group, arguably one the nation’s most sought out performers will perform on Saturday, July 10,2010 at 8pm at Revolution Live (200 W. Broward Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale). Admission is only $10.
Returning from their prolific journey throughout Prague, Dubai and South Africa, Black Violin is set to transfix their audience and place them into a hypnotic mantra. This stand-out team consists of Florida natives Wil B and Kev Marcus. With a string of high-profiled appearances on their resume with some of the top music heavyweights that include P.Diddy, Aretha Franklin, Eagles and Aerosmith to name a few, Black Violin return to their South Florida hometown with a re-energized energy, while continuing their journey of cementing their place as innovators within the entertainment industry.
Wil B and Kev Marcus met while attending Dillard High School of Performing Arts in Ft. Lauderdale and continued their friendship while both on full music scholarships to Florida State and Florida International University. They have combined a daunting array of musical styles and influences to produce their signature sound.
Laying down their foundation for a successful music career a few years ago by opening for Alicia Keys at the Billboard Music Awards, Black Violin began to secure an arsenal of accolades that include: coveting the title “Apollo Legend” in Harlem NY; having their music featured on “America’s Got Talent” and “So You Think You Can Dance”; featured on CBS’s CSI:NY, scored the opening scene by rearranging the climax of Giacomo Puccini’s Madame Butterfly and have had such companies as Coca-Cola and Disney coveted the hip-hop meets classical bend to promote their brand.
Vacillating between hip hop, r&b, hip-hop, pop, reggae and every other sound in between, this growing music powerhouse group has proved themselves as one of the most promising sounds stemming from the South Florida area.
Black Violin is working on their cd and is set to sculpt out their artistic identity in to the fabric of the music industry mix.
