The Massive Violins

-

Vocal/Cello Ensemble

The Massive Violins are a charming and exciting ensemble of seven singer-cellists whose original act combines virtuoso cello-playing, exceptional musical arrangements, sublime vocals and witty inter-song patter.

The band take audiences on a jaw-dropping journey through an eclective mix of music from the likes of Elvis, Queen, the Beach Boys, Clean Bandit, Mozart and many more.

They perform regularly at a diverse range of events - from elegant weddings and private events to festivals and arts venues such as Notting Hill's Twentieth-Century Theatre, the Chelsea Arts Club and Cecil Sharp House in Camden. 

Seven cellos, seven voices, one unique sound.
