The Mos Eisley cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope is unforgettable, in no small part because of its catchy “Cantina Band” theme. So what better way for a geeky father and son to bond than by playing the classic John Williams’ composition together?

It’s a song fans have heard thousands of times before, but it’s a lot of fun to watch the hands of this musical pair work together to make it come alive. 

Lockard, who once appeared on America’s Got Talent with his brother Anthony, has a number of other videos on YouTube where he plays piano including arrangements of “Concerning Hobbits” from The Lord of the Rings and the main theme from The Phantom of the OperaThis one however appears to be the first to include his son.
