Chuk Bontrager, electric violin (uses his Viper to play lower than most cellos and louder than most guitars in Chicago-based bands Vicarious TOOL Tribute, KAZY, and Tributosaurus. You can also find him playing “regular” with the Lake Forest Symphony, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra, and the occasional Broadway in Chicago production; and he teaches at the Merit School of Music and Columbia College.)
Lucas Shogren, cello (classically trained, internationally known cellist, composer, educator, and conductor. Currently, Shogren has put his efforts into the band Clocks & Clouds. This three-piece band features violin, cello, and drums and combines both classical and rock styles to create an epic instrumental listening experience.)
Rachel Barton Pine, acoustic and electric violin (one of the most-recognized names on the classical music scene today. She made her debut as a soloist with the Chicago Symphony at age 10. Since then she’s gone on to perform with orchestras all over the world, as well as with many of rock’s biggest names.)
