Vitamin String Quartet Set to Play the Hits of 2018 at City Winery Monday


@Toby Tenenbaum

This Monday, August 13th, the legendary Los Angeles modern-classical collective Vitamin String Quartet are set to rock The Loft at City Winery with takes from their latest compilation, VSQ Performs the Hits from 2018. The show, which is $22 at the door, begins at 8:30 pm. City Winery’s doors open at 7 pm, and guests are encouraged to cozy into their seats and explore the winery and restaurant’s elaborate drink offerings, which include an assortment of wines made and barreled onsite in the West Village.  


The quartet project’s new EP includes seven modern-classical interpretations of today’s biggest hits, including All the Stars by Kendrick Lamar and SZA, Mine by Bazzi, God’s Plan by Drake, Meant to Be by Bebe Rexha and the Florida Georgia Line, Say Something by Justin Timberlake, Whatever it Takes by Imagine Dragons and In My Blood by Shawn Mendes. Known to mix up current hits with contemporary classics, the quartet may also reach into the arsenal to perform Feel It Still by Portugal. The Man, Dark Necessities by Red Hot Chili Peppers, I Want You (She’s So Heavy) by The Beatles, Rolling in the Deep by Adele, Do you Realize?? By The Flaming Lips, Flashing Lights by Kanye West and Dwele, Touch by Daft Punk, Motion Picture Soundtrack by Radiohead and Everlong by Foo Fighters. Last summer in NYC, VSQ tackled Starboy by The Weeknd, True Love Waits by Radiohead and Salon by Zedd—here’s that clip.


The CMH Label Group’s series of string quartet projects is now in its 19th consecutive year making new music, having sold millions of records and amassing a huge following in the music community over those two decades of producing eclectic records with a variety of musicians and touring the United States, Europe and Asia. The Los Angeles-based independent record company CMH Label Group develops these tribute-projects with a constantly evolving and revolving cast of musicians, arranged and produced on a per-project basis to the tune of each creative’s strengths, bringing each project to life in its own unique fashion. For this, VSQ has garnered a passionate, loyal fan base, reflected in monthly listenership on platforms like Spotify, in album sales, in Billboard chartings, in features in hit TV shows such as ShamelessWestworld and Modern Family, and in the dissemination of official, exclusive sheet music from the newest record and from others, on sale at City Winery on Monday night.  


Limited tickets remain here and at the box office throughout the day of the show.
