Black Violin is composed of classically trained violist and violinist Wil B. and Kev Marcus, who combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom.” Black Violin has shared stages with top names including Kanye West, Aerosmith and Tom Petty, and has creatively collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys.
Black Violin will continue their successful Classical Boom Tour in 2018, with a performance at Fraze Pavilion on June 28th, plus an opening performance by members of The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. This tour is a follow up to the successful 2016-2017 UNITY tour, which saw 28 sold-out public performances.
Black Violin served as the house band for ESPN’s Annual Heisman Memorial Trophy Presentation, held in December, for the second consecutive year. In Fall of 2017, the network selected Black Violin’s track “Stereotypes” to promote the US Open tennis tournament.
Black Violin is currently writing and recording their next studio album, due out in 2018. The band’s most recent record, Stereotypes, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. NPR praised the album and band, saying “their music will keep classical music alive for the next generation.”
