JON SCHMIDT’S GAME DAY
A beautiful way to end a long day
… under the spell of Jon’s magic hands and the awesome keyboard which he masters.
I believe this is one of his early compositions before “The Piano Guys” became the YouTube sensation they currently are.
I had the pleasure to watch them live, in concert.
It was an unforgettable evening.
I just found this video today.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek. They gained popularity through YouTube, where they posted piano and cello renditions of popular songs and classical music.
Schmidt and Nelson‘s music is accompanied by professional-quality videos shot and edited by Paul Anderson and formerly by Tel Stewart.
Paul Anderson owned a piano shop in St. George, Utah. He met musician Jon Schmidt as the latter walked in to ask if he could practice there for an upcoming concert. Months later, Paul Anderson and Tel Stewart (then just for fun) started making videos together with Jon Schmidt. It was not too long after that they did their first collaboration with Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, and Al Van Der Beek as the studio and music technician. After the five of them started collaborating the group really started to take off, producing a music video each week and posting it to YouTube.
… and the rest is history!
