On Independence Day we were fortunate to catch The Piano Boys Zeyn and Rhyan Shweyk performing on the street on our way to the fireworks. We were then honored to be invited by them to the
MERIT youth performance at the Music Academy of the West during the Fiesta Parade.

Here are my videos and photos of the Piano Boys performing this past Friday evening at Camino Real Marketplace!

It was a treat to experience them performing by themselves for an extended period of time. They posed with their very supportive father Nader and mother Deena as well

And with us!

We also sat and had dinner and watched others eat and carry on with life as The Piano Boys performed.

OK... Here are seven videos I made of their performances.

The first one was Malagueña by Cuban musician Ernesto Lecuona. They performed this for a special Fiesta event with the understanding it  would only be performed again after Fiesta was over!

Here are six more of their performances!

I happened to pop by Anna's and I stopped to listen for a bit. These two young gentlemen are very talented. I hope to see them there again this Friday!

Buskers are not panhandlers. Pan handlers ask for money and do nothing in return other than sit there or verbally abuse you. Buskers perform a form of entertainment and have a passive request for donations in the form of a hat, open music instrument case, or jar, etc. They entertain people for free, and people can choose to 'tip' them or not. It's not the same thing.

Tips for performance is like someone at a piano bar in a restaurant have a tip jar. Or waiters getting tips. Homeless (not all are even homeless) expecting money for nothing is a whole different story. These handsome young fellows are offering outstanding entertainment. Obviously store/mall managers can hear them and are okay with it.

Thank you for the kind words. These young men are skilled musicians who are kind enough to perform in public for free. Tips are totally optional. And they are at Camino Real Marketplace with full support of the management. Some day these boys will be performing in places like Carnegie Hall for $100 a ticket. Enjoy them here for tips while you can!
Google "Joshua Bell subway experiment" for a powerful story. This world famous musician did a sold out show in Boston at $100/seat. As an experiment, he performed at the entrance to a DC Metro subway station, playing his $3.5 Stradivarius violin. Most people walked by and paid no attention.
Best wishes,

Wow! What impressive talents and repertoire by these young pianists! Having a beer with friends at OTA and these boys are sure making it extra pleasant for everyone here. Googled their name and saw this article. Thanks SBPianoBoys for entertaining Goleta and EdHat for mentioning them.

I agree with SBROBERT. I've thoroughly enjoyed these kids' performances there a couple of times and they sure play like concert pianists, for free. Get their autographs also while you can.
