Nili Brosh performs the national anthem and Beat It with the rest of the Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil cast, at a sold-out NHL Vegas Golden Knights vs. Arizona Coyotes game on March 28, 2018.
As the only live musician in what Rolling Stone magazine hails “A virtual parade of ‘wow’ moments,” world-renowned guitarist Nili Brosh commands the stage of the Cirque du Soliel Michael Jackson ONE performance night after night in Las Vegas. Adorned in gold and shooting fire out of her guitar, her presence on stage leaves no doubt that there is still more to come from this accomplished guitarist.
Cementing her virtuosity of guitar, she has somehow managed to tour with legendary jazz artist Alphonso Johnson during her stint at Cirque and squeeze in performances as part of the Steve Vai rhythm section at the Musician’s Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. Nili has released two solo albums and performed with some of the greatest musicians in the world.
Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Nili moved to Boston, Massachusetts at the age of 12. Later, Nili attended Berklee College of Music where she founded the Nili Brosh Band. In 2009, she graduated Summa Cum Laude and subsequently became one of the youngest faculty members in the Berklee Summer Guitar Programs.
In 2010, Nili released her debut instrumental album entitled “Through The Looking Glass”, which featured a guest appearance by famed guitarist Andy Timmons. She recently released her second album entitled “A Matter of Perception”, featuring a heavyweight rhythm section including Virgil Donati, Bryan Beller, Marco Minnemann, Stu Hamm, Aquiles Priester, and others.
After her first album release, Nili joined The Iron Maidens, for whom she played many US cities with. Later, she became a member of Tony MacAlpine’s band, touring the US, Europe, and Mexico. She has also made guest appearances with Andy Timmons, Stu Hamm, Guthrie Govan, The Aristocrats, and has opened for Yngwie Malmsteen on his 2013 “Spellbound” US tour.
Currently residing in Las Vegas, Nili continues to perform her original material with her Nili Brosh Band while maintaining her insane schedule with Cirque du Soliel. Last year she conducted guitar clinics around the world and has also become a regular contributor for Premier Guitar magazine. In a world of guitar players, Nili continues to inspire and lead a new generation of talented, young guitarists.
Nili endorses Ibanez guitars, EMG pickups, Dunlop/MXR products, Xotic effects, and Dean Markley strings.
