The McCallum Theatre welcomes YouTube sensation The Piano Guys back to the Coachella Valley, for three exciting shows. The shows are lined up at 8:00 pm, Friday, January 17; and 2:00 and 8:00 pm, Saturday, January 18. The January 17 show is made possible through the generosity of Dan and Brooke Koehler. The Piano Guys are one of the most popular acts on social media today. The quartet has earned a whopping 1.6 billion-plus views on YouTube, along with 6.65 million subscribers. Not bad for four Utah dads-Paul Anderson (producer/videographer); Jon Schmidt (pianist/songwriter), Steve Nelson (cellist/songwriter) and Al van der Beek (producer/songwriter)-who got their start when Paul was looking for a way to promote his St. George, Utah, piano store.
“A billion is a big number-specially for a quartet of dads who just started making music videos for fun,” said by Steven.
People enjoy watching them perform in locations around the world, including The Great Wall of China and Iguazu Falls in Brazil.
The Piano Guys also have around 1.7 million Facebook fans who are sharing videos like “Michael Meets Mozart,”. It features more than 100 tracks of cello textures. It also includes a deep bass drum sound created by tapping on the cello body, a shaker sound made by Steven rubbing rosin on his bow and a record-scratch noise caused by his scraping a quarter on the strings.
Jon said that parents were using their music to show their kids how fun classical music can be. It is also to motivate them to learn instruments. He also added that their cover song mash-ups had become a great way to introduce themselves. It made a connection with their audience as a classic spin on new stuff-and a new spin on classic stuff.
The guys-all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints-have released eight studio albums, most recently Limitless, which went to No. 1 on the U.S. New Age Chart.
Tickets for these performances are priced at $125, $95 and $65. Tickets are available at the Theatre’s website at www.mccallumtheatre.com or by calling the McCallum Theatre Box Office at (760) 340-2787.
