ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Concert violinist, rock violinist, and fiddle player, Adam DeGraff, is known by his fans across the country and around the world as a 'violin monster,' a 'totally sick beast,' and 'dude' with 'mad violin skillz.' (He`s told these are good things.)

From his many years as a first chair orchestral musician, to his ground breaking and "positively pyrotechnic' fiddle playing with his group, Pianafiddle, Adam has performed for millions of concertgoers throughout his career. 

A Northwestern University graduate and an avid, bad chess player, Adam considers himself the luckiest person in the world because every day he wakes up and goes to "work" with long time friend, Russell Fallstad, where the two write music and perform their unique brand of Violin Rock into the wee hours of the night at some of the coolest places in the world.
