The teenage rock cello sensation gained worldwide exposure on the NBC-TV Nationally syndicated program America's Got Talent in 2014. The brothers' live performance of the Hendrix classic tune- "Purple Haze" created an instant viral video and garnered over 6 million views on YouTube and a massive following. The boys finished as finalists and became a part of AGT live shows in Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas.
*Since their successful run on the show, Emil and Dariel RockCellos became a hallmark name in the corporate world, delivering an act with unparalleled energy. Known as an act with a heart warming story of the American dream come true, the brothers are sure to give a performance to remember.

In their early teens, brothers Emil and Dariel have made a name for themselves around the world as the youngest American cello virtuoso cross-over duo to be featured on a national stage. In 2013, Emil and Dariel were alerted that internationally renowned Sony Masterworks recording artists, 2Cellos, had featured Emil and Dariels' YouTube video on their Facebook and Twitter pages, and were praising their performance on AGT. They even nicknamed them 2Cellos Junior. This announcement quickly led to something much greater when Emil and Dariel were invited to appear as guest artists during 2Cellos' U.S. tour in Orlando and Tampa.
In 2016, Emil and Dariel were invited to share the stage by their childhood idols, Apocalyptica, during their soldout Shadowmaker tour. Apocalyptica, the world famous Finnish cello rock band, having numerous #1 rock radio hits and having sold over 6 million records worldwide, forever revolutionized the cello and people's perception of what the instrument is capable of.
Emil and Dariel work for many hours each day exploring new and undiscovered cello techniques, trying to stretch it to unknown depths. The brothers come from several generations of classical musicians. Their extensive classical training comes from their grandfather, Leonid Rubanchik*, Principal cellist, cello Professor, and a student of Piatigorsky. They began playing the cello when they were 4-years old while being home-schooled. Their long hours of practice were under the strict guidance of their grandfather who instilled hard work, dedication, and passion in pursuit of their career. They're extremely grateful to their grandfather for inspiring them to play the cello and for his selfless dedication in teaching them. They also credit their abilities to years of intense practice, patience, perseverance, and disciplined commitment which has made them worthy of the great recognition they've received at such a young age.
"They're not your grandfather's cello players — but they have their grandfather to thank for propelling them to stardom."
