Who would've thought that a piano store would bring these four talented dads to where they are today?
The Piano Guys, composed of Paul Anderson, Jon Schmidt, Steven Nelson and Al van der Beek, were formed because of a piano store with the same name, owned by Anderson. He thought of a creative way to sell his pianos and decided to team up with Schmidt, who personally knows fellow musician Nelson, a cellist. van der Beek then joined the group as the head of their studio operations as well as the co-writer and co-arranger. From there, The Piano Guys were formed.
Three years ago, the guys began posting their videos on YouTube and all of it garnered more than 1 million views! But the biggest hit was their cover of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" with almost 25 million views. It's amazing how all of them were playing with just one piano!

Today, their undeniable talent brought them here in the Philippines! Catch them LIVE tonight at The Podium at 7PM and tomorrow, September 7 at the SM Mall of Asia Centerstage!
