THE PIANO GUYS RELEASE THEIR FIRST LIVE ALBUM - November 13, 2015

"Playing Carnegie's stage was an unbelievable experience for us," says Steven Sharp Nelson. "As we stepped out onto the same wood that has supported the feet of so many "Greats" we were filled with an amalgam of awe, intimidation, and gratitude. And to share the stage with artists we love and admire - Peter Hollens, Julie Nelson and Alex Boye was sublime… We're thrilled we had the opportunity to record this experience and give it back to everyone that made this journey possible."

Of their epic experience at Red Rocks, Jon Schmidt says: "Our favorite part of our shows is the chance to interact with the audience. Never has this opportunity been grander than at Red Rocks. Playing to a sea of people ebbing and flowing between ancient red rock walls that seemed to scrape the sky was unlike anything we've ever experienced. Capturing it on film took a mountain of effort, utilizing 30 cameras, a plethora of microphones and more people than we've ever had backstage. With this live DVD/internationally syndicated TV program we hope we can pull people in to experience this unforgettable night with us."

The audio recording from Carnegie Hall features live versions of fan favorites like "Let It Go," and "What Makes You Beautiful," plus special arrangements featuring guests like Peter Hollens, Julie Nelson (Steven's wife) and Alex Boye. TPG's very own Al van der Beek makes his vocal debut on a gorgeous rendition of "Father's Eyes."

The DVD performances recorded at the scenic Red Rocks Amphitheatre features 14 songs including popular mash-up melodies "Ants Marching /Beethoven Ode to Joy," and "The Mission / How Great Thou Art." It also includes their top viewed video, a re-imagined version of One Republic's "Beethoven's 5 Secrets."
