Violinist Damien Escobar at The Birchmere
May 15 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until May 15, 2019
The Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, Virginia welcomes renowned violinist Damien Escobar for two shows May 14-15, 2019. Damien Escobar is a violinist from New York City and was previously in a group with his older brother Tourie called Nuttin’ But Stringz. Starting out as street performers, the duo soon found themselves winning talent contests at the Apollo Theater, appearing in movies (2006’s Step Up), on television shows (NBC’s America’s Got Talent) and even performing at President Obama’s inauguration in 2009.
The duo separated in 2012, and Escobar spent a short period of time as a real estate broker before returning to music as a solo artist. Escobar’s musical style has been described by some as a mix of classical, jazz, pop, R&B, and hip hop.
