It's no secret that Deni Bonet can rock a violin like nobody's business. Or that she writes memorable songs that make you want to listen again and again and again. For years, Bonet has been honing her craft as a violinist, singer, songwriter and performer. She is, simply, a musical total package. Her tastes and styles range from pop to roots-rock to new folk, with pure classical training and precision playing. Whether fronting her own band of outstanding players, or collaborating with anyone from Cyndi Lauper to R.E.M. to Robyn Hitchcock, Deni has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting, dynamic and entertaining performers on the live circuit. Although classically trained, Deni quit the classical world because she hated having to wear black and sit still. She was an original cast member of National Public Radio's premier music show, Mountain Stage, performing in her own right and accompanying guests like Richard Thompson, Warren Zevon, and the Indigo Girls, before leaving the show to form her own band. She has performed at Lilith Fair, Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, and just recently performed at the White House for the President, First Lady and Vice-President. She has been described by the Wall Street Journal as like “Sheryl Crow meets the B-52's". and music from her five independent CD releases has been featured on HBO, NBC, American Airlines and in several movies and TV shows. A Deni Bonet show features a compelling mix of her own original songs, with catchy, sing-along melodies and close vocal harmonies; exciting instrumentals, showcasing both her own and the band’s virtuosity; and a few carefully chosen covers, which are given an original twist. This performance will be a celebration of the completion of her latest album, Bright Shiny Objects, recorded with Grammy-winning producer Robert L Smith. In a departure from her usual song-based material, this album is entirely instrumental. Deni has spent the past year and a half writing and recording with a Who’s Who of some of the best musicians on the planet – including Steve Gaboury (Cyndi Lauper), Liberty DeVitto (Billy Joel), Richard Barone (Bongos), Shawn Pelton (SNL), Will Lee (Letterman), Matt Beck (Matchbox Twenty), Steve Holley (Paul McCartney), Graham Maby (Joe Jackson), Ben Butler (Chris Botti), Mike Visceglia (Suzanne Vega), Jack Daley (Lenny Kravitz), and the list goes on and on… Deni Bonet's talent, combined with her boundless energy, does not have a limit. Watch her perform and you'll quickly understand why; she's a whirling dervish; a streak of aural and visual lightning wielding a violin bow. Dynamic and personable, she makes a concert hall become intimate and cozy. At the same time, don't expect to sit back on your laurels and just watch - a Deni Bonet show is a total experience in which you'd better be ready to have fun.
