Dylan Spoering put up the sign in his front yard a few days ago, a neighbor saw it, and put the information on Facebook. By showtime on saturday, more than 400 showed up to hear dylan play.
"There was a sign in the front yard, and I took a photo of it, put it on Facebook, and somehow it turned into this crazy viral thing." said Spoering's neighbor Thomas Rehbein.
The ambitious piano players said "This is what I always wanted for, a bit concert like this. So I'm here to play pieces for my concert. I just wanted to play for people, just wanted to play for free and now I'm famous."
"He'd wake up at 4 in the morning and ask can I go in front of the house and stop people and tell them about the concert." said Spoering's parents.
"When people see something that's really cute and heartwarming, people from different walks of life can get behind, I can see how it took off."
