Piano Guys

I saw The Piano Guys in concert last night, at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, and oh my heart it was amazing! For people who haven't heard of them they're four dads from Utah who become famous on YouTube. They write mash ups of classical and modern music, have a brilliant cello player and a paino player who perform, and their YouTube videos feature this happening on top of cliffs, on a train, on the Great Wall of China... Their music is fantastic, their crazy how-did-they-get-the-piano-up-there? stories are fantastic, but most of all, they're infectious joy in making music is fantastic and a real pleasure to watch. If you get a change to watch them on the second leg of their tour I can't recommend them enough.

They played absolutely all sorts, I couldn't pick a favourite, but it included: The Cello Song; Beethoven's 5 Secrets; Rockelbels Canon; Paradise (Peponi)... and finished off with four guys, one piano for What Makes You Beautiful. I am still on a music high.
