Lighter Side: Jazz band serenades dairy herd

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article

One American jazz band has an unlikely set of groupies – French cows.

The band was touring France when they stumbled upon a herd of jazz-loving cows in the countryside. The group, the New Hot 5, explained to KSL News the impromptu concert was initiated by tuba player Steve Call.

Call, who grew up on a farm, was amazed by the beauty of the herd and decided to pick up his tuba to start playing.

What happened next can only be described as “amoosing.”

All bad jokes aside, the animals appeared to be quite enthralled by the catchy tunes. Click the embedded video above for the full clip. 

The video originally went viral in 2011, but after being featured on several sites this week, the video saw another impressive surge in popularity. The video has since been seen more than 9.7 million times on YouTube.

Oh - the video starts out with just two band members, but partway through the whole ensemble joins in, and they play some VERY good New Orleans Jazz!
