In the Christmas Spirit: Walk Off the Earth

    The extra-vocal group, Walk Off the Earth, has done their first Christmas carol, "Little Drummer Boy", and it is wonderfully entertaining, as all of their videos are.
Band Members: Gianni Luminati, Sarah Blackwood, Ryan Marshall, Mike Taylor, Joel Cassady

    I first discovered Walk Off the Earth, when they covered Gotye's pop sensation "Somebody That I Used to Know". The video was well produced, yet one can tell that it was an in-house video, which gave it a very authentic feel, thereby displaying the group's artistry, not unlike The Piano Guys' music videos.

    Just below is their first video that captured the interest of many, including myself:



    As you may have noticed, after witnessing the first first video above, Walk Off the Earth has a wide range of sound, with great synergies of blend. Their renditions of these popular songs have a way of sounding at least as good as the original.


Band Members: Gianni Luminati, Sarah Blackwood, Ryan Marshall, Mike Taylor, Joel Cassady. Which on is the dog? The toboggan guy, maybe?
