“Nuttin’ But Stringz,” a Sony Records Emmy award-winning international urban rock violin duo are playing live on stage for the hottest tick in town – “Dancing with the Stars.” Damien and Toure Escobar, of Queens, NY, were originally scheduled to perform last November, and “I couldn’t believe it, until they sent me the airline tickets in the mail,” said Damien Escobar, who’s brother Toure make up the famed duo.
They are scheduled to play live on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars”, April 13th in Hollywood.
Both brothers were featured as the top three contestants on NBC’s America’s Got Talent show last year.
Damien and Toure Escobar, "Nuttin’ But Stringz", began playing New York’s subways when they were little boys and grew up in Queens, New York.
“We have inspired a lot of kids, who now find it cool to pick up a violin along with their basketball and play to their hearts content,” said Damien Escobar. “I was called a ‘sissy’ and every other name in school when I was play in the violin at age 8. My brother brought it home from school and I was hooked on the instrument.”
MAYO will provide entertainment publicity and global media relations for the international recording artists, who are traveling to Paris after the live ABC television show for the French version of America’s Got Talent there. On April 26, the Violin duo urban-rock hip-hopper artists will play on MTV unplugged, then they return to the studios to record a new album.
The hip-hop violinists have performed and interviewed with more than 60 different TV shows ie. The Tonight Show w/Jay Leno, Ellen, The Today Show. Noggin's (Jack's Big Music Show) to name a few. They have also played for the president at the White House.
