About FUSE

Electric string ensemble
London
Exciting, uplifting and memorable live show entertainment to electrify your event

The FUSE duo are award winning British virtuoso violinists who harness their bespoke and world exclusive $1 Million Swarovski Crystal electric violins, seizing classic pop, cross-over and club tracks and put them through the FUSE wringer. FUSE’s eponymous album was released through Edel/Universal Records. The results are innovative but loving reinterpretations of hit anthems for the violin. The band says, “It’s completely fresh, no one thought that what we do was even possible. Everything you hear is violins! The style that we use when we play is more akin to that of a guitar player, with more soul and electricity – literally! We specialise in blowing away people’s preconceptions.” FUSE are already finding friends with music royalty who appreciate what they do. After raving, “I love what you’ve done, how did you get that sound?”, Francis Rossi appears on the album version of Quo’s ‘Down Down’, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd offered his services as a drummer and Roger Daltrey asked them to support him! To celebrate the release of their album FUSE are the only string group in the world to exclusively collaborated with Swarovski Crystal to create the most expensive electric violins ever made! Each violin has over 50,000, each crystal individually applied to the bespoke carbon-kevlar Bridge violin body. Each FUSE Signature Swarovski violin is worth over $1,500,000 and was launched to the media in-store at the world famous Harrods. In 2013 FUSE’s Ben Lee became the 5-time Guinness World Record as the Fastest Violin Player in the world. Ben performed “Flight of the Bumblebee” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov at over 17 notes per second making him the first player in history to break the magic-minute mark – Ben can proclaim to now have the fastest fingers in the world! What FUSE do can have a truly global appeal; there are no language barriers. Whilst they are very proudly a string band, listeners can sing along to the choruses that we all know. With the release of “FUSE”, they will be bringing their unique brand of entertainment to a whole new audience!

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We are only available as 2 electric violinists

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We try to be as accommodating as possible with timings but can't guarantee availability for new dates. Please contact us.

How much time do you need to set up?

45-60 mins is usually enough. Happy to discuss upfront.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

We have many many years experience with corporate and private events - we are happy to take requests from our repertoire but sometimes we may make our own recommendations based on our extensive experience. But always happy to discuss.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

A third party production company would be needed to hire in the live PA and sound engineer. This is what we have done for over 10 years and it has always worked well. We are happy to help select an appropriate company.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes we can, with enough warning as all our tracks have our own FUSE production backing track underpinning that famous FUSE sound. There could be an additional fee attached to delivering special request - again happy to discuss.
