Electric 5 is an electric rock string quintet that performs unique and captivating choreographed string renditions of some of the greatest rock and pop hits of all time. Through their highly innovative arrangements and masterful musicianship, Electric 5 is able to recreate the beauty and magic of every song they cover without the use of back-up tracks.
Their genre defying act includes vocals, and is capped by the virtuosic electric violin wah-wah pedal improv solos of the groups founder Adia - winner of the 2014 Judges Selection for the Jimi Hendrix Experience Tour, and the 2013 Steve Vai Best In Shred competition.
