Cello Joe presents Cello MADNESS Congress 2012, featuring mystical moments of musical mayhem…cellists improvising in ways you’ve never heard cello before.

We also read music arranged for cello. We invite all cellists to come and explore with us. Other instruments are welcome too, especially violin, viola, and upright bass. Featured performers include Rushad Eggelston (the craziest punk rock cellist in all the lands), Clay Chollar Vs. CelloJoe (live dubstep trip tron phonics & cello), and Cello Joe (see it to believe it, friends: beatboxing + cello = classical hip hop).
