This is music

I had seen this video a long time ago where 5 guys jammed on ONE piano. It was truly amazing and I shared it with a bunch of people at that time but iI didn’t really remember it until my sister reminded me of it. I find it unbelievable how five guys can create something so great with one instrument. I know it’s a One Direction song but, after this the song has become a lot more interesting so special thanks to The Piano Guys. I went on their website to try and find some background on the guys so here it goes:

Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They’ve made 35 since joining forces a little more than a year ago, including their most recent hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” But it’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an Internet phenomenon that has now brought them to their major label debut album, The Piano Guys, to be released on Sony Masterworks on October 2nd, 2012.

But just who are The Piano Guys? Actually, there’s only one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. Yet the other three – Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart and Al van der Beek – are equally significant members of the group. The Piano Guys’ name comes from Anderson’s piano store in St. George, Utah, which was called The Piano Guys.

Anyway, here is just another one of their videos and I highly invite you to visit their YouTube channel. There are a lot of really, really, really cool ones.
