Pianos on Location
A running theme with thrill seeking pianists who are after an interesting location to generate some publicity, is for them to play the piano in truly ridiculous places. For most piano sensations today (especially those who have reached the dizzying heights of fame through social media)the more ridiculous the location, the better.
If there was a prize for the person who managed to get their piano to the most ludicrous location in the world, then the Piano Guys would definitely be in the running for first place. Back in 2016 they embarked on a mission to film a series of videos where they serenaded the wonders of the world with music – this involved taking a piano to a different location for each video.

On the video featuring the impressive Mayan pyramids of Chichén Itzá, we witness a grand piano floating down a river in the jungle on a specially made floating stage. There are no doubts that getting a grand piano to a location as remote as this takes a lot of effort, dedication, and probably a dash of madness.

“Since ThePianoGuys began, it has been our impossible dream to put a grand piano on the Great Wall. People laughed at us when we said we were determined to do it. It is done. All of us at ThePianoGuys would like to dedicate this music video to the visionary behind it all and the man whose dream this has always been: Paul Anderson.”
The Piano Guys have clearly set a trend and people are coming up with more and more crazy places to take their large and unwieldy pianos. Most recently, a Swiss Pianist called Gabriel Arnold has recently taken a piano to a sheet of ice on the Baltic Sea, having previously played in the Swiss Alps…
