If you’ve ever wanted to hear the masterminds behind some of your favorite artist’s string arrangements then you definitely want to check out Black Violin when they come to the Pikes Peak Center on Sept. 26 in the beautiful setting of Colorado Springs. Wil B (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin) have worked with some of the biggest names in the business including Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, P.Diddy, Kanye West, Fifty Cent, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin, the Eagles and more. As the list suggests, Black Violin blends a wide variety of genres with their classical training to create a unique sound you won’t hear anywhere else.

The duo began honing their craft at an early age. While studying music in college they formed their own production company, DKNEX. Wil and Kev were immediately struck at how fans reacted when they would perform with their artists and Black Violin came to fruition. The duo was introduced onto the world stage when they performed with Alicia Keys at the 2004 Billboard Music Awards. After more than a decade of tireless touring--opening for hip-hop luminaries like the Wu-Tang Clan and Fat Joe--Black Violin has stepped into the role of headliners, hitting major venues like the Pikes Peak Center. You don’t want to miss them when they come to Colorado Springs on Sept. 26.
