    I absolutely love the Piano Guys, but something has changed with their concerts since Sony took over. The last concert I went to was a Kingsbury Hall and after they signed with Sony. Just not the same. Jon's father wasn't up there doing hilarious stand up comedy, no back flip by Jon off a raised platform. Just not the family show it used to be. Love you and your coworkers, Jon. You are great people and doing much good in this world. The all time best concert was at Red Butte. I loved the flash mob with the young musicians!

    Beautiful, so worth watching and listening to the video.

    I agree with Jimmy James. You make a great point. What Nelson Mandela accomplished was much bigger than himself. First of all the piano guys is just entertainment. their most popular videos are all covers of famous artists such as Taylor Swift, Usher, Coldplay, One Direction the list goes on and on of artists you wouldn't exactly want your kids listening to. Unless of course it was put into a classical format with no lyrics. They have found a great niche in the entertainment industry that was not previously tapped into and they have done a great job of it. But saying what has transpired is bigger than themselves sounds a little more Kanye West like than humble.

    In articles such as this, when reviewing musical talent, it would be nice (when possible) to include a link to a sample of the music.

    I use my talents in the right way, too. By no means, however, does that infer that it is always going to look like the 'locally approved' way.

    I disagree with the Piano Guys on this one and think they are missing the point. I'm sorry. While beautiful, your covers of One Direction (among other songs) are not changing the world. To assume that just because there are miracles involved, that it must be for something "bigger than themselves", is to completely underestimate just how much God loves each and every "Piano Guy". The miracle here is that God is making it possible for 4 middle aged guys to do something they love. That's quite an amazing miracle to me. Don't get me wrong, their music is beautiful and does help make the world a better place. But again, I think they are missing what the real miracle is here, and it's not bigger than themselves.

    I absolutely adore this group and their heavenly music! I too would love to see them in person someday if they ever plan to be in Virginia anytime soon. But I've enjoyed hours of listening to them online on you tube. The tickets are also a bit too pricey for poor folks like me but not beyond my ability to pay for quality entertainment. God bless you folks! What a great example of letting God be a partner in your endeavors! Thanks for the spiritual lift!

    Just in case any of the Piano guys are reading these comments you should notice that ticket prices are keeping many of your fans from being able to attend on the 21st.They are very high. even a bad seat at $27 is too much.Just a thought.

    I was able to see Jon in concert in Vernal a few years ago, kind of before the Piano Guys era, and I loved it. I would not be able to afford to go to any of the concerts due to the ticket prices, so I enjoy watching them on YouTube. I love it when Alex Boye joins them, too. Men of good standards and ethics, and SO talented! Thank you for sharing this with the world. We need more of this. God bless.

    I am an atheist and I absolutely love the Piano Guys because their musical mashup's are so beautiful. Good music transcends all belief systems. I was able to see them in concert and they were just delightful. It's too bad that the ticket prices are so high because I would love to see them in person again.
