After making big YouTube waves for his 5-minute drumming mashups of numerous bands’ entire song catalogs, garnering millions of page views and leading to a live performance at a recent halftime show for the New York Knicks, Kye Smith is back with his latest drumming cover creation.
While touring with a ska band called The Porkers last month up and down the West Coast of the U.S., Smith found time to set up his drum kit in front of the iconic Capitol Records building in Los Angeles, performing hits from the 75 years the label has been in existence. Smith covered everything from Duke Ellington and Frank Sinatra to Linda Ronstadt and Megadeth, and he shows his versatility with brushes and a big ol’ cymbal crash.
Take a look and listen (and, if you’re a Louie Prima fan, you can also jump, jive, and wail) at the 75 songs Smith covers in 5 minutes.
Smith’s most popular YouTube video to date was his take on the Beatles discography, and last month, he performed it live at Madison Square Garden.
As for where Smith goes from here, he told the Daily Dot recently, “I have no idea where it will take me. I’m in America at the moment. I’m stoked, and I’m going with the flow. I’m just doing as many videos as I can, doing as much music I can. I’m just enjoying the ride.”
