I just returned home after a pleasant afternoon at Summerfest in Milwaukee, and I really wanted to tell you your performance was totally the highlight of our visit. As soon as we heard you, we were all, like, “Whoa, you never hear this kind of sound at Summerfest”. It was so awesome-sounding and unusual. It sounded as if Jimi Hendrix was on stage. My daughter said, “How are they making this sound?" You ladies are wonderful
Mark H,
Thanks for being an inspiration to young girls - it's important that they know that violin and cello can be used in many different types of music!
Dessie A,
Loved the performance! The concert was captivating and high energy, plus I recognized most of the music. Great choice of songs to showcase your talents.
Dee Dee U,
Electric 5’s lead single, an amazing cover rendition of Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’, should go some way towards convincing you that you’re going to love this amazing unique quintet. They take their extraordinary talents as cellists and violinists and mix it with a huge splash of classic and alternative rock to create one of the most interesting genre bending crossovers of recent years.
