If joy were a person, he'd bring both peace and frenzy. He'd be full of music, light, and energy that soothes even as it stirs us up. Eyes closed, wire-rim glasses in place, mandolin pressed against his ribs, joy would be Sam Bush on a stage.

"I feel fortunate that when it's time to play, no matter how I feel physically or mentally, once the downbeat starts, my mind goes to a place that's all music," says Bush. "The joy of the music comes to me and overtakes me sometimes -- I just become part of the music."

Classically-trained violist Wil B and violinist Key Marcus combine their classical backgrounds and their hip-hop influence to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom.” They’ve performed at three Super Bowls and at President Obama’s inauguration. Black Violin clinched the Showtime at the Apollo 2005. They are joined on this tour by TDJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes.
