For Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester and Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste, music has always been the path to something better. The pair is on the verge of breaking big with their musical duo Black Violin: It played at President Obama’s inauguration, won the Showtime at the Apollo Legend title at New York’s storied Apollo Theatre, backed Alicia Keys at the Billboard Awards... It’s on a tour of Levitt Pavilions nationwide that brings it to Bethlehem for a free show at SteelStacks on Saturday July 11. All that has come about, Baptiste says in a recent phone call from the duo’s native Fort Lauderdale, Fla. , because the two felt constrained by the classical music they were expected to make with their violins and added the influences of other music they loved — especially hip-hop. Their teachers told them they could win college scholarships with classical music — and they did: Baptiste to Florida State University and Sylvester to Florida International University. But the pair reunited afterward with the idea of becoming music producers in south Florida’s rich music environment, where they formed their own production company DKNEX and record label. In a recent telephone call from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. LEHIGH VALLEY MUSIC: Have you guys started the Levitt Pavilions Tour yet. The reason we’re talking is because you’re going to play the Levitt Pavilion in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on July 11 and I’m going to write a story in advance of your coming here.
