Deni Bonet - NY Violin Rocker!
19:00Tickets €7 - €9 Sunday 19th. May 2019 Doors 7PM
It's no secret that Deni Bonet can rock a violin like nobody's business. Or that she writes memorable songs that make you want to listen again and again and again. For years, Deni has been honing her craft as a violinist, singer, songwriter and performer. She is, simply, a musical total package. Her style ranges from pop to roots-rock to new folk. With her latest album, Bright Shiny Objects, it extends to sheer, ultra-high voltage, genre-defying brilliance, with pure classical training and precision playing.
Although classically trained, Deni quit the classical world because she hated having to wear black and sit still! Deni has a stellar resume, having performed and recorded with, Mundy, Cyndi Lauper, R.E.M., Sarah McLachlan and many others. Her previous appearances include Carnegie Hall, The Great Wall of China, the United Nations, and the White House for President Obama. For the past several years, Deni has been touring in the US and Europe, and has become an in-demand act, headlining various festivals, performing arts centers, clubs, colleges and international venues. Her music has been featured on HBO, NBC, American Airlines, several film and modern dance projects. She was recently honored to be awarded a grant through the Arts Envoy Program of the US Government to spend a month on a residency in Africa teaching violin, songwriting, and rock ’n roll at a music college in Zanzibar. Deni Bonet has released several CDs of her own original music, including last year’s critically-acclaimed "Bright Shiny Objects” on Zip Records/Sony-RED.
Deni Bonet's talent, combined with her boundless energy, does not have a limit. Watch her perform and you'll quickly understand why; she's a whirling dervish; a streak of aural and visual lightning wielding a violin bow. Dynamic and personable, she makes a concert hall become intimate and cozy. At the same time, don't expect to sit back on your laurels and just watch - a Deni Bonet show is a total experience in which you'd better be ready to have fun, participate and dance.
