The Dueling Fiddlers
Rock Violin? You Betcha!
Adam DeGraff and Russell Fallstad are both classically trained violinists and world renowned. After hugely successful careers in the main stream world of orchestral music, the best friends joined forces a year ago and decided to break the mold in a big way. Creating what they call rock violin, The Dueling Fiddlers have invented a style of play like no other. A rock band consisting of two concert violinists was a hard sell when we they first played The Rainbow on Hollywood's Sunset Strip. Before they took the stage, the sound guy said, "You boys sure you're in the right place?" Truth is, they weren't sure. They started the show with "I Love Rock-n-Roll." Ten minutes later, after a text message campaign by the audience, the house was packed and, that night, The Rainbow was rock violin.
According to Adam and Russell, the duel is not between them, but between boundary and possibility, self-imposed limitations and their wildest dreams. Rock violin is about inspiration, not fear. It's about forgetting the plan and letting passion run the show. Their motto? "We are rock violin, you are too!" after experiencing one performance, you'll be hooked!
