I saw these guys on the Today Show this morning and went straight to youtube to get their music to you. First, a caveat–what they do to a piano probably should be illegal. (I own a Yamaha grand piano and I would never bang on it like that.) But the sound they come up with is so terrifically fun and mind-blowingly joyful that I’m giving them a pass. And it’s not my piano!
The Piano Guys are five Utah dads and best friends, one of whom owns a piano store and was trying to come up with novel ways to advertise. Only one actually plays piano, another is a cellist, and the rest of them are obviously quick studies. Here is their rendition of One Direction’s, “What Makes You Beautiful.”
If you’re not smiling from ear to ear after watching this, someone should call 911 because you’re probably dead.
