The original electric string quartet, Bond, have announced a show at Union Chapel London on Saturday 25 January 2020 – this special London date will see Bond play tracks from their first album ‘Born’ along with other favourite tracks from their 19-year career.
Educated to the highest standard at some of the world’s most celebrated music institutions (Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Guildhall and Trinity College of Music), Bond are the first truly globally successful classical crossover group who certainly caused a lot of controversy with their debut release. Within a week of the album hitting number one on the classical charts, it was banned for ‘not being classical enough’. The album still achieved world-wide success reaching the top 20 in charts across Europe and spending 6 weeks in the UK Top 40.
Bond are the quartet of Tania Davis (violin), Eos Counsell (violin), Elspeth Hanson (viola) and Gay-Yee Westerhoff (cello) – together the group has sold in excess of 4 million records worldwide, achieved a staggering 56 platinum and 15 gold discs making them the best-selling string quartet of all time.
Bond are strong writers and arrangers, having produced a number of their own records, and they have worked with top names in the music industry such as David Arnold, Nitin Sawhney, Michael Giacchino, and Tonči Huljić. The band has also performed with many world-class artists including Luciano Pavarotti, Nigel Kennedy and Nick Mason, Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra.
Career highlights for Bond include touring the world many times over, performing in world class venues, from their debut (and subsequent headline concerts) at the Royal Albert Hall to Shea Stadium, the Worker’s Stadium in Beijing, and Times Square, New York and Sydney Opera House. The girls also had the honour of performing live on the world stage at The Olympics Closing Ceremony at London 2012.
Margins Cafe will be serving delicious, hot, homemade food at this event. All profits support The Margins Project, which works with people who face homelessness and crisis and is based here at the Chapel.
