The DePue Brothers are at it again, this time with The Orange Blossom Special

Bookmark and Share

The DePue Brothers were named "Musical Family Of America" by a presidential decree, were the subject of a PBS documentary, and Jason and Zach were featured in the film Music From The Inside Out. The band offers outstanding workshops and masterclasses, including 8 different instrumental clinics for students of any age level as well as group classes and performances tailored for student participation.

The core of the band is made up of siblings, classically trained and with more awards between them than it's possible to list. Alex is a classical violinist as well as a rocker and an award-winning fiddler. Wallace is presently assistant concertmaster of the Philly Pops. Jason is a member of the first violin section of The Philadelphia Orchestra and Zach is currently concertmaster for the Indianapolis Symphony. That's a lot of musical firepower already, but add to the ensemble a world-class percussionist from The Philadelphia Orchestra, Don Liuzzi; IBMA 2013 Banjo Player Of The Year Mike Munford and esteemed bassist Kevin MacConnell, and what you get is a unique, high energy take on traditional music.

The 4 violin playing brothers are back at it again, this time with the whole band in a family favorite, The Orange Blossom Special. Watch the attached clip and Enjoy!!!
