Led by composer/electric violinist/vocalist Joe Deninzon, who has been called "The Jimi Hendrix of the violin," Stratospheerius has showcased its "frenzied melange of alt-bluegrass, progressive rock, jazz fusion and funkability" throughout the world. The New York-based group has opened for Tim Reynolds, Mickey Hart and John Scofield, among many others. Its live performances are filled with funky dance grooves, rip-roaring guitar/violin jams and hooks that mix jazz, funk and rock with Gypsy influences. Stratospheerius was a winner of the John Lennon International Songwriting Competition and was named "Best Jam Band" in the Musician's Atlas. The concert is also broadcast live on
