Rainbow Connection Live

Rainbow Connection Live

Every time we hear the song Rainbow Connection from The Muppet Movie, it gives us the feels. While Jim Henson set the bar high with his original performance, 13-year-old puppeteer Kai and his dad Kelbe Schrank did the song and its creators proud during an event at Aubrey, Texas’ Fortunata Winery.

I’ve No More F**ks to Give

(PG-13: Language) With his dapper outfit and handlebar moustache, musician Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. seems like quite the gentleman. But don’t let his looks fool you. He’s got the mouth of a truck driver, and he’s not taking any guff from anyone.

We like to imagine David Hasselhoff pulling up in a rusted out old jalopy (with an LED light bar on front) as the visual accompaniment to Banjo Guy Ollie’s awesomely bluegrassified cover of the familiar theme from Knight Rider.

The original Sonic the Hedgehog was loaded with some of the most memorable music in the history of video games, including the classic opening level Green Hill Zone. Banjo Guy Ollie turns in an equally memorable performance of the tune on banjo and mandolin.

Redditor rrizing’s girlfriend stumbled onto some video of her old middle school teacher, Steve Messenger, who turned in what might be the greatest performance of Snoop Dogg’s Gin and Juice ever made. His YouTube channel is packed with more perfect covers.

Musician and actor Kurt Quinn attempts to set a record as the fastest banjo player on Earth. But unlike other speedy musicians who break out Flight of the Bumblebee, Kurt has something a little different up his short sleeves.

Playing the Bass-Jo

Musician Rob Scallon proves that just because a musical instrument is designed for one thing, there’s no reason it can’t be used for another. We wonder if Flea would ever consider giving up his bass for one of these. Probably not.

Banjotallica

Musician Rob Scallon and his pals turn in a fun performance of Metallica’s Master of Puppets with the lead guitar replaced with banjo. His outfit reminds us of an overall joke we’re pretty sure we heard on Dr. Katz… “Q: What goes with these? A: A banjo and no women.”

Daft Punk: Get Plucky

An unusual, down home cover of Daft Punk’s hit track, performed on banjo by musician Charles Butler. No he didn’t call it Get Plucky – we made that up all on our own. That’s why they pay us the big bucks.
