The electric cello duo, Bridge Duo, is a versatile ensemble that is taking the cello to places never seen before. Bridge Duo’s unique combination of musicianship and entertainment expands the possibilities of electric string instruments beyond Bach and into the the realms of Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin.
Bridge Duo is a versatile ensemble whose arrangements start as cello duets. Guitars, violins, and vocals are regular additions when those sounds are desired.
Bridge Duo was created in 2012 when world-class classical musicians Jerry Pence and Mert Sermet came together. Their careers have taken them from Carnegie Hall to the Grand Ole Opry to the Venetian in Las Vegas, with countless venues in between. Jerry and Mert have performed and recorded with musicians such as Ray Charles, YES, Diana Ross, Henry Mancini, Barry White, Carrie Underwood, Carlos Santana, Andrea Bocelli, Stevie Wonder, and Smokey Robinson. As well, they have performed in performances of Phantom of the Opera, the Lion King, Cheap Trick, the Las Vegas Philharmonic, and the Pacific Symphony.
Bridge Duo can be seen in Las Vegas and throughout the country at both public and private events.
