Black Violin at The Egg

music duo Black Violin

The duo Black Violin is set for a show at The Egg May 17, 2019. Tickets go on sale the general public this Thursday, July 26 -- they're $34.50 and up.

Band blurbage:

Black Violin - featuring Wil Baptiste and Kevin "Kev Marcus" Sylvester - blends classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass with influences ranging from Shostakovich and Bach to Nas and Jay-Z. Their major label debut recording "Stereotypes" is anything but stereotypical as they break all the rules in creating their one-of-a-kind musical fusion that has rocked concert halls and festivals worldwide.

Black Violin is also lined up for a "SPAC on Stage" show at SPAC August 20, but it's been sold out for months. It's the second straight year the duo sold out their SPAC on Stage show. Black Violin also played Troy Musical Hall this past April.

Two more 2019 concerts announced for The Egg

January 11: "We Shall Overcome": A Musical Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr featuring The Damien Sneed Band

April 13: The Fab Faux - "From the Cavern to the Rooftop"
