Bach to the Future is composed of chart-topping pianist Michael Silverman, pioneer of cutting-edge electronic percussion Rob Silverman, musical-arrangement connoisseur Matt Bollinger and electric violinist Andrew Driscoll.
Each musician is a renowned artist in his own right. Michael is an Emmy Award winning composer who has written music for hundreds of film and television productions on CNN, ABC, A&E. Rob is the author of the best-selling “Drumset 101,” Andrew is a Berklee School of Music graduate and has performed with Luciano Pavarotti, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and it was Matt’s interest in arranging Bach’s cello suites for six-string electric bass that was the creation for this unique quartet.
Bach to the Future uses unique instruments like the keytar, zendrum and violectra to put a modern twist on the musical stylings of Bach and Beethoven adding a little jazz here, African and Latin rhythms there and whole lot of personal panache to every part of the show.
