The Skivvies have garnered buzz thanks to their Youtube videos, which capture them playing various instruments, from the cello, ukulele, guitar and glockenspiel to the melodica, all in their underwear.
Tunes included "We Found Love," "Diet Mountain Dew," "Pumped Up Kicks," "Call Your Girlfriend," "Call Me," "Call Me Maybe," "Umbrella," "Video Killed the Radio Star," "Get Low" and "Careless Whisper." Tony Award winner Benanti closed the evening with a medley of "Bootylicious" and "Freak Like Me."
Laura Benanti, Wesley Taylor, Adam Kantor, Emily Bergl, Lauren Molina, Nick Cearley and More Show Some Skin for The Skivvies
The Skivvies will perform Highline Ballroom on Monday, Jan. 28 at 8 PM.
"Hardbody Hoedown" is described as a bluegrass-tinged parody mega-medley of hip-hop songs about body parts. "The mashups we’ve been doing at our live shows naturally led us to our parody single, 'Hardbody Hoedown,' where we give the filthiest rap the prettiest twang," Cearley said in a statement.
The song is now available for download via iTunes and other digital outlets.
