Violectric® is an award-winning acoustic and electric string ensemble led by Producer and Recording Artist (including on GRAMMY® Award-Winning/Nominate albums) and GRAMMYU Mentor Michelle Jones. Violectric and its smaller ensemble, Fretless Rock, illuminate the stage and the audience’s senses through the use of cutting-edge technology and interactive experiences. They are the first and only LED instrument ensemble using their exclusive Violuminescence© LED instruments with LaserBows©. They were named “House Band for City of Orlando” by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer in 2022.

Formed in 2008, they have performed internationally as a featured act, opening act, convention entertainment, and also provide music education programs throughout the U.S and Asia. Their custom arrangements of classic and modern rock tunes ranging from Led Zeppelin to Metallica to SIA and other modern artists cannot be heard anywhere else and are each arranged by the members of the band making them completely unique. Promo Video
