The Z Hotel had our attention last week when they debuted their 100-room hotel with sky beams, a light-footed Henry Zilberman, and one of the most beautiful views we've seen in a while. For their July 4 bash (which remains invite only, sorry outer borough friends!), they have chosen to enlist the skills of the very same electric violinist who one-upped the DJ at their opening party, Gray Devio.

We've heard of hotels hiring global music directors to oversee the music scene, and once in a while a lounge pianist catches our eye. But a resident electric violinist—who plays on the roof?! This is something new.

It is unclear whether Devio is a friend of Zilberman's (as many of the attendees of last week's party were), or simply hired on his merit. A quick visit to Devio's website shows he is an accomplished performer, having worked on big-budget TV projects for NBC and TBS (his bio confirms he has even collaborated with none other than the Biebs himself!)

We also learned that he is a shoe size 10, and weighs exactly 160lbs. Which is about average for electric violin players, last time we checked.
