About Black Violin
Since founding Black Violin a decade ago – named after an album by preeminent African-American swing era jazz violinist Stuff Smith – Wil B and Kev Marcus have performed an average of 200 shows a year in 49 states and 36 countries as far away as Dubai, Prague and South Africa. They are classically trained viola and violin players who first met playing in a high school orchestra in Florida. They have played concerts for audiences ranging from the troops in Iraq to both the official President’s Inaugural Ball and the Kids Inaugural in Washington, DC, where Barack Obama himself gave each a hearty hand-shake and man hug, as First Lady Michelle Obama looked on approvingly.
