30 Days of Music: Day 29

The Piano Guys

The Piano Guys are a group of men who live in Utah and love making music.  Steven Nelson is the cellist, and Jon Schmidt is the pianist.  They had made a lot of videos prior to "The Cello Wars".  However, when this song was released, they sky-rocketed to stardom!  I found them through a Facebook post, and was hooked.

Next up, they did a cover of Coldplay's "Paradise", which you've already seen in this 30 day challenge.     It's such an awesome song, however, that it's worth playing again.

If you're curious to know how they got the piano on the mountain, stay tuned for the last clip for the behind-the-scenes look at this video!

They then took on The Bourne Identity soundtrack.  I love how creative this video is.  Watching them appear on the train with the piano and awesome!

They then took on the classic theme from Mission Impossible.  With the help of violinist Lindsey Stirling, this video is a lot of fun.

Finally, the video with the most YouTube hits yet.  They took a song from One Direction, a group I hadn't heard of before this video came out, and did a cover of their song "What Makes You Beautiful" using only items found in the piano.  Simply amazing.

For fun, here is the making of "Peponi".
