Brett Domino is the alter-ego of 24 year old musician Rob J Madin. As Brett Domino, he is a 27 year old musician, internet celebrity and TV presenter from Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. He is best known for his YouTube videos, in which he plays mostly covers and medleys of popular songs on the Stylophone and keytar - sometimes with his band, 'The Brett Domino Trio'. The band are notable in that its members (Brett Domino, Steven Peavis and Mitch Hutchinson) all play exclusively keyboard instruments. In a number of recent videos, however, Brett and Steven have diversified to incorporate other instruments, such as ukulele, theremin, recorder, accordion and kalimba. Brett and the band have been featured a number of times as part of BBC Radio 1's Chris Moyles Show, and in 2009 the band appeared on ITV's Britain's Got Talent, performing live as the house band on two episodes of ITV2's sister show, Britain's Got More Talent, in the final week.
Brett's Youtube videos have received over 5,000,000 views. A recent video, the Justin Timberlake Medley featuring Trabasacks was posted by Justin Timberlake on his Twitter page and official website.
Brett has also been featured on the websites of Lady Gaga and Ellie Goulding. Another musical alter-ego of Rob J Madin has recently surfaced on YouTube with the name 'Rocco La Bête'. The visual style and editing techniques are very similar to those of the Brett Domino videos.
On November 22, 2010, Brett Domino released a song called "Gillian McKeith", a humourous take on the celebrity during her time in the 10th series of the ITV show I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!. The YouTube video has had over 1,000,000 views. It charted at number 10 on the iTunes chart but entered the UK Singles Chart at number 29 on November 28, 2010.
