Gay Quartet Heats Up Their Strings With Mozart - Kelly Clarkson Mash-Up: VIDEO


Well-Strung, the gay singing string quartet founded in 2012, has released a music video for their newest song, a mash-up of Mozart's "A Little Night Music" and Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone." Seems like an odd combination, no? Turns out, that's just Well-Strung's niche.  

Watch and listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

The group's website gives a little more information:

3_wellstrungOne Direction step aside, there’s a new kind of boy band on the circuit. The all-male string quartet Well-Strung features classical musicians who sing putting their own spin on the music of Mozart, Vivaldi, Rihanna, Adele Lady Gaga, and more! Their debut show sold-out Joe’s Pub on May 1st, 2012 in New York after being workshopped at Ars Nova NYC in February. 

Well-Strung stars first violinist Edmund Bagnell, second violinist Christopher Marchant, cellist Daniel Shevlin and violist Trevor Wadleigh.

I had the privilege of interviewing and writing a story about the group, as well as seeing them perform, this spring at the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater in New York. They are kind, personable, and have an excellent stage presence. Not to mention, their musicality is impressive, all the more so in that they sing and play at the same time. 

After finding success in New York and Provincetown, MA, this hunky quartet is spreading its wings this year, with gigs in Chicago, Miami, and even London. They are definitely ones to keep your eye on.

For information regarding the group's members, tour dates, videos, and more, visit their website.

  3. God that's cute, never seen anything like it before. Gay men make the world a better place when they're out.

  4. Saw Well Strung last year in P'town and was wildly impressed with all the attributes mentioned in the story: robust appearance, commanding stage presence, deep musicality. It's about the music and more. The breadth of the group's repertoire speaks to people of all ages and musical persuasions. Go see and hear them perform.

  9. I will be curious to see if this will bring some of the same vitriol to the comments here that Steve Grands haters spewed the last few days.
    Cause this really is just a marketing idea and not very creative.
    But I'm glad they are making some money off THEIR talent and good looks!

  15. Still just a novelty. Trying way too hard. Bastardization.
