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 over 35 since joining forces in early 2011, including their hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful."
Following the success of The Piano Guys' first two major label releases, "The Piano Guys" and "The Piano Guys 2," the group released their holiday album, "A Family Christmas" last year. "A Family Christmas" puts The Piano Guys' signature twist on such Christmas classics as "Silent Night," "Good King Wenceslas" and "Angels We Have Heard On High."
One of the internet’s latest viral stars has ties to our region.
Like Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and countless “Harlem Shake” takeoffs before it, Joanna Rohrback’s “Prancercise: A Fitness Workout” caught fire in a hurry last month, leading its Florida-based proprietor from virtual anonymity to millions of views and even the Today Show.
"The hits on my video were going up without any apparent reason," she says. "I wasn't sure if it was a computer error or what."
