String quartet? Yes. Traditional string quartet? Far from it. Urban Electra blends rock, pop, modern and classical music to create high-energy shows for corporate events and private occasions anywhere in the world. From classic rock to alternative rock, pop, club music, and cutting edge electronic music, the Urban Electra electric string quartet brings to the stage an eclectic repertoire of original works and chart toppers. No matter what the occasion calls for, from relaxed ambient noise to heart-pounding heavy metal, Urban Electra fits the bill. We strut our stuff for corporate gigs and parties as well as headline major festivals and outdoor events. When Urban Electra isn’t performing at large corporate functions we’re rockin’ out at community festivals, store openings, fashion shows, fundraisers and even lighting up the stage at the hottest nightclubs in town.
The members of Urban Electra are classically trained and have all received music performance degrees from the nation's top music schools. The quartet's members have performed extensively throughout the United States as well as in France, Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Belgium, and Austria. The four members have performed and recorded with pop music legends Donna Summer, Smokey Robinson, Tony Bennett, STYX, Tammy Wynette, Michael Crawford, Kenny G, & Regina Carter. Members have coached and performed with some of the world’s greatest string quartets such as the St. Lawrence String Quartet, the Juilliard String Quartet, and the Alexander String Quartet.
