One musician putting on a show is pretty impressive, but how much more if there are three of them playing together? That’s totally incredible! Witnessing them perform live inside the mall is something memorable and can brighten anyone’s day.

They make excellent music through a piano in the mall.

Seeing a piano sitting unused inside the mall, they decide to have fun with it and put on a mini-show. Mall-goers are surprised to witness their talents and hear the boogie-woogie music, which is undeniably mind-blowing.

Terry Miles is a talented pianist who is also a boogie-woogie maestro. We know very well how complex it is to be playing this kind of music, especially for those who are not skilled pianists. But with Miles’ superb piano playing skill, he does it effortlessly.

If you want to see how fantastic he is at playing boogie-woogie piano, you can check out his YouTube channel with over 290,000 subscribers. What’s more awesome is he provides lessons to those interested in mastering this kind of piano playing.

Miles’ stunning performance in Birmingham City Center has gone viral since it was uploaded. He is playing with his girlfriend and a random guy who’s also talented with the harmonica.

At the start of the video, you’ll see Miles making himself comfortable on the piano chair. As he begins playing, his girlfriend claps with him at his side.

A little later, his girlfriend touches the keys of the piano, and they play together for a duet.

You can tell they have mastered the keys of the piano that their fingers literally look like they’re just dancing as they play. Together, they create an energetic music that make passers-by turn their heads and stop to take a good look at the musicians and hear the awesome music.

More and more people get curious as the tempo goes more upbeat, resounding in the area.

Miles’ girlfriend takes a step back and lets him take the piano up a notch. A guy brings out his harmonica to play along, and it adds an excellent sound to the already groovy music.

The girlfriend then joins in, and the three of them continue to wow the crowd with amazing music. The trio makes the shoppers listen and watch their mini-show, putting a smile on their faces. Others are even pulling out their smartphones to take a video of their performance.

While they are on fire playing great music, the mall security guard goes near them to spoil the fun.

The security guard keeps repeating himself to make them stop, but the crowd is coming up to their defense. One guy talks to the guard nicely. Probably, asking him politely to just let them finish their piece as they are also loving the music.

While the people enjoy what they’re hearing and see the musicians pulling a tremendous impromptu performance, the trio extends the music playing a little bit before ending it with a bang.

Though the security guard doesn’t want to intrude, he’s somewhat worried, and he needs to do his job since a note is placed on the piano that reads, “so sorry, this is out of order.”

Miles shakes the security guard’s hand as a gesture of apology, and for not listening to him right away the moment he asked them to stop.

One viewer says:

“I don’t think the security guard was mad. He had a smile. He was just probably worried his boss would fire him if he didn’t stop it.”

The brilliant musicians’ spectacular performance has been viewed more than 17 million times.

Others who are close to the area feel envious for not being there to witness it live. You’d be lucky if you can catch Terry Miles play up close next time as he likes to record piano videos in various public places.
