An international music sensation, Dallas String Quartet was founded in 2007 by violist Ion Zanca. A fusion of contemporary classical and pop music, DSQ uses both traditional and electric strings performing as a quartet with the full accompaniment of drums and guitar. Known for their eclectic renditions of anything from Guns N’ Roses’ ‚ÄòSweet Child of Mine’ to Shawn Mendes’ ‚ÄòSe√±orita,’ DSQ is Bach meets Bon Jovi. In addition to their electric show, DSQ performs a holiday show titled after their newly released album ‘A Very Merry Christmas.’ The group is comprised of composer and violist Ion Zanca, violinists Eleanor Dunbar and Melissa Priller, bassist Young Heo, guitarist Anthony Plant, and percussionist/drummer Efren Guzman. DSQ has over 30 million streams on Spotify, more than 4 million views on YouTube, and receives over 1 million streams per week from their dedicated fans on Pandora. DSQ has performed for Presidents Obama and Bush, the College Football Playoffs, the NBA and NFL organizations, and sold out concert venues like the House of Blues and symphony halls. They’ve played alongside Josh Groban, Chicago, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and had music featured by ESPN and A&E.
