Banana Piano Performances by Beau Silver and Amanda Palmer
Check out these two amazing performances on the MaKey MaKey banana piano, by Stanford graduate student Beau Silver, and musician Amanda Palmer!
Beau Silver is a brilliantly talented member of the MaKey MaKey team, and he also happens to be Jay's brother.
