Musicians The GAG Quartet turns in a lighthearted tribute to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart that combines metal, salsa, and a bit of tango. Despite how that sounds, somehow it all works. Though Mozart might not be too happy with what they did to him in the video.
One of our favorite 1980’s guilty pleasures is the music of German synth-pop band Kraftwerk. Andy Westphal feels the same way, and performed a fun cover of their track The Robots with the help of his son Hudson. Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance.
While digging around YouTube, we stumbled onto a true talent. Musician Christian Cuevas has a smooth and powerful voice that will pierce you to the soul, and won’t let go. Seriously folks, this guy deserves a major record deal. Check out more of his tracks here.
Guitarist Billy Watman turns in a fingerstyle rendition of Queen’s magnum opus which would be impressive if played by anyone, but it’s even more amazing that he’s just 14 years old and can play like this. More on Billy’s YouTube page. (Video by Tony Goode)
Adam Ben Ezra turns in an awesome cover version of David Bowie’s classic, highlighted by his deft upright bass skills, and a fuzzed-out rhythm that breathes new life into the 1970 track. And if you never heard it before, be sure to check out his version of the Dexter theme.
