I put some videos of pop tunes I arranged for string quintet on Youtube. Search for "Grand Fiddle Band".

I also was lucky enough to see Emilie Autumn in concert when she visited Arizona.  It was very inspiring.  A VIP ticket got an intimate performance (audience of 30 or less people) of her playing the acoustic violin while drinking tea.  It was an awesome experience and I'm very impressed with her talent.  Also, that week I had the opportunity to see Zoe Keating play the cello (she was in Rasputina for a while).  I'm not sure if Zoe Keating is technically considered a rock artist, but she uses live electronic looping to create a very interesting and layered sound.
