MEET THE MUSICIANS
Prima Donna of the Violin
Favorite Song: Havana
Aisha Dossumova is a world-class musician, concert soloist, and violin professor. Her beautiful sound and flawless technique is the epitome of Elegance. There is no one better to perform our unique arrangements, which weave together pop, rock, and classical music in surprising ways (i.e. Mozart quotes in Havana!).
Violin, Tickler of the Keys
Favorite Song: Everybody
Spanish-born Claudia Pellegrini is the bad-ass violinist of the ensemble. Her killer solos will get a room full of people to party with a string quartet like it is a rock band. A versatile multi-instrumentalist, Claudia is also the ideal violinist to perform our jazz standards and show tunes. Her extensive background in musical theater gives her the confidence and stage presence to lead our string quartet with flair and energy.
Violist, Singer, Uke Slinger, DJ
Favorite Song: Kashmir
Jennifer Boorum is the energizer of the group. When’s she’s not grooving on the viola, she’s fronting the band with her captivating vocals and stage presence. Jenny is also our resident DJ + Emcee, hosting your full-day event with style. Behind the scenes she partners with Ray to produce our shows and coordinate logistics for wedding and corporate events.
Favorite Song: GOT Remix
*AKA: The Cable Guy, The Sound Guy, The Beat Dropper, Arranger, Producer
(...and cellist, too!)
Rajli (Ray) Bicolli does it all. From writing all the signature mashups to mixing the beats, he plays a mean cello with his hands and rocks the rhythm machine with his feet. He runs the show from start to finish and somehow doesn’t break a sweat (even when he does the moonwalk or the limbo while playing the electric cello — no, really, there’s proof).
