Since starting Black Violin a decade ago, Wil Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester have performed an average of 200 shows a year in 49 states and 36 countries as far away as South Africa, while appearing at official NFL celebrations for three Super Bowls and last year’s U.S. Open in Forest Hills. Their groundbreaking collaboration has seen them play their blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass music for everybody from the troops in Iraq to both the official President’s Inaugural Ball and the Kids Inaugural in Washington, DC, where President Barack Obama himself gave each a hearty hand shake. Individually and together, Black Violin has collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles.
