The Piano Guys, Budapest Arena, 3 June
The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of pianist Jon Schmidt, cellist Steven Sharp Nelson, videographer Paul Anderson, and music producer Al van der Beek.

They gained popularity through YouTube, where in 2010 they began posting piano and cello compositions combining classical, contemporary, and rock and roll music, accompanied by professional-quality videos.

The Piano Guys draw on classical, contemporary, and rock and roll in their compositions for piano and cello. Much of their popularity among younger fans is based on their "mashups" of classical and contemporary songs, such as blending Bach and Bruno Mars, or Vivaldi's "Winter" and Disney's "Let It Go".

The group's YouTube videos show the musicians performing in a variety of open-air, natural, and exotic settings.

These include locations in the Utah desert, at the edge of a 1,000-foot cliff, atop a speeding train, and at a beach, among many others. Anderson's goal was "to put pianos in places where nobody would expect to see them", thereby generating marketing buzz for his store.
