The Mad Violinist and The Symphony Crack Orchestra

The Mad Violinist and The Symphony Crack Orchestra

Ashanti "The Mad Violinist" Floyd just finished working on several tracks for Nicki Minaj. Fortunately for us, he is taking the time to visit what SCO considers their "hometown" venue.

Trained from an early age in strings and percussion and having a mastery of music theory, Ashanti Floyd is considered a "melodic, rhythmic genius". While being a five time Grammy nominated violinist, composer, producer & multi-instrumentalist of 30 instruments, Ashanti is also part time violinist for double platinum recording artist Lupe Fiasco.

In 2009, after departing ways with Shady/Interscope recording artist Yelawolf, Ashanti and guitarist Matt Barrett formed The Symphony Crack Orchestra to create a different, innovative style of music. The Mad Violinist (Ashanti Floyd) and the Symphony Crack Orchestra are an accomplished band with a strong international following with unique style attracting broad audiences through Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, R&B, Jazz and Alternative Music.

The group has a strong musical pedigree including, Matt Barrett on guitar, Chris Morgan on keys, Mike Belluso playing Bass, Casey Crogan on Drums, Lance Powlis with the Horns, and Adrian Crutchfield on the Saxophone.

The Mad Violinist & Symphony Crack Orchestra are thrilled to announce the release of their sophomore album, Fiend, which is now available on iTunes and Amazon MP3. Only 24 hours after releasing the album to the world, Fiend climbed from Top 200 to Top 10 on iTunes. A record that many artists only dream about when releasing new music to their fans. Symphony Crack’s first album, Addiction set new standards in music within their category by successfully meshing different musical styles and theory into single tracks on a very dynamic record. Seeing the early success of Fiend leaves fans highly anticipating the release of their third album.
