One Direction step aside, there’s a new kind of boy band on the circuit. The all-male, ALL GAY string quartet Well-Strung features classical musicians who sing putting their own spin on the music of Mozart, Vivaldi, Rihanna, Adele Lady Gaga, and more! Aside from all being incredibly gorgeous, the men of the all male singing string quartet Well-Strung are talented masters of turning pop hits into instrumental wonders.

Their debut show sold-out Joe’s Pub on May 1st, 2012 in New York after being workshopped at Ars Nova NYC in February.  Since then they have played venues across the world such as The Art House in Provincetown, the Leicester Square Theatre in London, 54 Below in New York, House of Blues in New Orleans and Feinstein’s in San Francisco.



Well-Strung stars first violinist Edmund Bagnell, second violinist Christopher Marchant, cellist Daniel Shevlin and violist Trevor Wadleigh. Well-Strung’s show is directed and co-written by Donna Drake with arrangements by David Levinson. The quartet was formed by producer/co-writer/manager Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant.  Additional arrangements are by Daniel Shevlin, Yair Evnine and Christopher Marchant.

THE SHOW IS, according to Bagnell, “not quite a concert and a little bit more than a cabaret performance.”

“Plus, we’re not just giving you idle chatter in between songs, we actually want to say something about ourselves,” he says.

Christopher Marchant is probably  best known to many in the gay community, from his many modeling gigs. Besides touring with Well Strung, he has done some scorching hot photo shoots! Who knew playing that instrument would result in such huge biceps.  See  one of his Sexy photo shoots with Marco Ovando. – Corn fed Ohio boy Chris lives in NYC  now and when not making music moonlights as  a bartender.
