Event Information
"Josh Vietti is a Hip-Hop/Pop violinist from southern California. Although generally billed as a Hip-Hop Violinist, he also incorporates classical, gospel, country, pop and jazz into his performances and is highly interactive with the audience. He started playing the violin when he was four years old. At the age of seven, Vietti received a violin scholarship with virtuoso Mischa Lefkowitz of the LA Philharmonic and studied with him for over ten years. In 2006, he decided to pursue his passion for music and started street performing in Los Angeles. Josh did this for four years before being featured in the 2010 NBA ALL-Star Game Commercial. A year later he was featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Since then Vietti has been touring consistently across the United States building his fan base, performing at ARIA Casino in Las Vegas for Michael Jordan, opening for artists Ne-Yo, Fabolous, Earth Wind & Fire and Justin Moore. He recently completed a 150 date college tour and was labeled one of 2012?s Best Breakout Artists by CBS Los Angeles. Josh was also a featured performer at Austin Fashion Week in 2011 and 2012. He also performed at the Governor?s Mansion in Austin, TX for the Formula 1 US Grand Prix event that was held in Austin, sponsored by Circuit of The Americas. Vietti recently performed at the 2013 Stone Soul Music Festival at the Richmond International Speedway in Richmond, VA. He was an opening act for artists B.o.B., French Montana and Fantasia. Vietti has also performed at Dodger Stadium twice in 2013.
