Biographies of Alex De Pue and Miguel De Hoyos (2010)

Individually, Alex DePue and Miguel DeHoyos have wowed the world—from Depue performing at Carnegie Hall at the age of 14 and touring with rock guitarist Steve Vai in 2007 to DeHoyos entertaining government officials and diplomats in Mexico and performing in Romania by invitation from the Romanian government. Together, they produce an unparalleled sound—music that can speak to anyone’s soul. “There’s really no other way to describe the fiddling of Alex DePue — it stings.” – Andrew McGinn, Springfield News-Sun “I’ve seen the great guitar players up close and in person: Santana, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan… Miguel De Hoyos is among these greats…” – Steve Dryden, Baja Breeze – B.C.N., MX DePue/DeHoyos have performed throughout North America, opening for the Philadelphia Orchestra at Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall, performing a solo spot with the Ocean City Pops (Ocean City, NJ), and appearing on international television for the Mrs. World Pageant (Tijuana, B.C.S., MX). They were featured at the International Film Festival and Art Walk (Imperial City, CA), and headlined the Clark State University Artist Series. In 2007, the pair presented a standout concert at the Stranahan Theater (Toledo, OH). “The two perform an engaging and often virtuosic combination of classical-tinted takes on popular songs and original compositions, their cohesion and chops often remarkable.” – Todd Clouser, Gringo Gazette – B.C.S., MX In 2009, the duo was at the National Oldtime Fiddling Championship in Weiser (ID) as instructors, and later that year, appeared as the featured act at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Grand Master Fiddler Championship in Nashville. DePue/DeHoyos have appeared at Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo (Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S., MX), and have performed throughout Mexico for Mexican diplomats and government officials. DePue/DeHoyos did a radio show with George Varga, Music Critic for the San Diego Union-Tribune. “What results is a heady mix of virtuosity and sophistication that is even more impressive live”. – George Varga, San Diego Union-Tribune The duo currently has two recordings available, “Underground Whispers” and “Twisted Strings”. Alex Depue and Miguel De Hoyos have only been playing together a short time but it seems like they have been playing together for decades. Their new CD titled “Underground Whispers” is due out on June 13th, 2008 and is sure to turn some heads. Rock-N-Roll on the fiddle and guitar featuring “Dust In The Wind” by Kansas, “Stairway To Heaven” by Led Zeppelin, and “All I Ask” from The Phantom Of The Opera to name a few.
