Archant

Virtuoso violinists Stringfever will combine nimble fingers and beat-boxing in Hornchurch on Sunday.

The band of brothers, plus one cousin, claim to be the first “genetically modified” string quartet, promising a mix of classic and popular hits - plus a prize for anyone who can name all 20 tunes correctly in their show tunes medley.

Giles, Ralph, Neal and Graham Broadbent will also rip through the history of music in five minutes, as well as Ravel’s Bolero - featuring two volunteers and all four family members playing the same cello at once.

Having played violin in many west end symphonies, Giles is joined by cousin Graham also on violin and vocals, while brother Ralph MCs and Neal plays the double bass and beat boxes.

These boys have performed all over the world, from the Las Vegas strip to the heart of New York City - as well as a brief appearance on Songs of Praise.

Tickets for the evening in Billet Lane, which begins at 7.30pm, cost from £10 to £19.50. To book, call the box office on 01708 443 333 or visit queens-online.co.uk.
