"Brothers Gage: Fast Harmonica Jam (Cotton Eye Joe)"
Here are Dave Gage's sons the Brothers Gage, Brody (age 16) and Alex (age 18), with a music video shot after their two appearances on America's Got Talent 2020.

They both learned to play harmonica around age 5 and now also sing, play guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. The key to getting good is consistency. They still play & practice every day and haven't missed a day in many, many years.
