I Vitamin String Quartet, anche conosciuti come The String Quartet, sono un gruppo musicale statunitense proveniente da Los Angeles, California. Sono conosciuti per i loro album tributo a celebri gruppi rock e pop.

Storia[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

I loro album sono pubblicati dalla Vitamin Records e primariamente suonati da un quartetto d'archi, ma spesso sono usati anche altri strumenti. "Vitamin Sting Quartet cerca di applicare l'asseto tipico del rock n' roll alla musica classica" afferma Tom Tally,[1] un violinista e arrangiatore che prodotto e ha partecipato a oltre cinquanta album dei VSQ.

I loro album rendono onore a un'ampia varietà di generi musicali, inclusi pop, rock, metal, techno, country e rap, e a un'ampia varietà di artisti, come Led Zeppelin, Queen, Michael Jackson, Eminem, Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Black Sabbath, Adele, Lady Gaga, Iron Maiden, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Jimi Hendrix, Muse, Linkin Park, Staind e molti altri. La loro discografia comprende 261 album.

Tra la primavera e l'estate del 2012, la loro musica è stata mandata in onda 24 ore su 24 sulla stazione radio WWHK di Concord, New Hampshire.

Nel 2008, il VSQ ha contribuito alla registrazione della canzone "Jack and Sally Montage" per l'album Nightmare Revisited, in cui la colonna sonora originale del film Nightmare Before Christmas è reinterpretata da artisti vari, tra cui The All-American Rejects, Plain White T's, Rise Against e DeVotchKa.
