RANDI FISHENFELD, violinist for The Wildfire Band, has been described as a “Tornado”on the violin who can bow life into the dead.” This New York born and raised classically trained violinist, turned “bombshell electric violinist” began studying violin at a very young age and quickly showed that she had that certain combination of hunger to learn the instrument as well as that innate quality of talent, such that her teachers knew she would go far in music.
Randi studied with various teachers until she finally met and began to study with her mentor – Professor Sylvan Schulman , from Julliard School of Music. At the same time, Randi continued her academic studies and went on to pass the bar exam and became a licensed attorney!! Music had always been her first love though, and in 1995 she decided to devote all her attention to music.
Since then she has played with the L.I. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, international recording artists AIR SUPPLY , FOGHAT, BB KING, CHAD SMITH (Red Hot Chili Peppers), JOURNEY, KANSAS and with CLARENCE CLEMONS of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND fame, and his band called THE TEMPLE OF SOUL among others. Randi’s energy and movement on stage is the engine that drives WILDFIRE’S very exciting show.
