    They are fantastic!! Love their music, particularly their renditions of pop music like U2's Street with no name and With or Without You, ACDC Thunderstruck. They are exciting to watch---who have thought, "pop cellos"! Their innovative style has restored some faith in the future generation.

    You Tube clips are great.

      Glad you enjoyed. Wife stumbled upon them this morning and got me to watch a few. Amazed to see that cellos can rock like that. There's a you tube clip of them and the audience in 18th century European opera clothes, white wigs, etc. which is a real gas to watch.

        Somehow my wife came across the "2Cellos" after looking into this;
        Clara Rockmore’s Theremin, or more exact, a you tube of Clara playing the theremin. Wiki page on her;

          Er, 4 Cellos?

          Apocalyptica, from Finland, composed of 4, later 3 Cellists (graduates of Helsinki's very prestigious Sibelius Musik Academy, some have played or have ties with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and the Finnish National Opera) started in the early 90's as a Metallica tribute band, but have gone on to compose their own material, add lyrics etc.










          and lastly, their "Bittersweet", one of my favorite tunes:

              2 more cellos!

              I'm not one for reality or talent type shows, but I caught these 2 teenage cello playing brothers from "America's Got Talent" doing Jimi's "Purple Haze" ... somewhere, that escapes me? Anyway, the clip was easy enough to find again:
