Marionette drummer Chops Sawyer tackles classic Rush

Posted by on April 16, 2015

NYC marionette master and musician Ricky Syers put his music skills to the test in his recent video, “Chops Sawyer.”

Syers built the puppet (named, “Chops,” of course) and the drum set, saying that he, “didn’t expect them to actually work! But here’s Chops tryin to get through Rush’s Tom Sawyer!” That 4+ minute song is no small feat (pun not intended)!

Syers, who frequently performs in Washington Square Park in Manhattan, has done a spot with Fox Sports and Pizza Hut, along with a McDonalds commercial in Norway. The classic Rush tune is from their 1981 album, Moving Pictures.
