With this many lights, more than 46,000 watts of electricity buzzed around as the four-member group performed, as reported by Newsner.

The American musical group consists of Jon Schmidt, cellist Steven Sharp Nelson, videographer Paul Anderson, and music producer Al van der Beek.


They rose to prominence via YouTube in 2010, after posting piano and cello compositions combining classical, contemporary, and rock and roll music, accompanied by professional-quality videos.

They gained following from younger music lovers because of their "mashups" of classical and contemporary songs, such as blending Bach and Bruno Mars, or Vivaldi's "Winter" and Disney's "Let It Go".

They surpassed one billion views on YouTube in August 2016, during which they had nearly 5 million subscribers.

Their first six major-label studio albums, “The Piano Guys”, “The Piano Guys 2”, “A Family Christmas”, “Wonders”, “Uncharted”, and “Christmas Together” each reached number one on the Billboard Classical Albums and New Age Albums charts.
