Diamondback combines Luke Skywalker with Jimi Hendrix in this act featuring a electric violin played live that's shaped like Luke's Landspeeder jet car. Annie - who's played the violin since age 3 - plays the Star Wars theme, followed by a distorted, Hendrix-style "Star Spangled Banner."
The violin, which has real sparkler rocket jets, was built by Carlos Flores, aka Solrac Artist. This act was created for the Star Girls show - the original Star Wars burlesque parody produced by Devil's Playground of Los Angeles.
