Some Indianapolis musicians are generating a lot of buzz on social media after having trouble with a connecting flight.

The group "Time for Three" was surprised when they found out they could not bring their violins on board the plane.

"US Airways is not letting us put our violins on an airplane," Nick Kendall said in a YouTube video while Zach DePue played his violin next to the plane.

DePue is also a member of the Indianapolis Symphony. The men were in Charlotte making a connection for Fayetteville, Arkansas when the crew would not let them bring aboard their violins.

"Bach would be very upset," Kendall said.

After a storm on Twitter, the airline stepped in to help and the men were re-booked with their instruments safely on board with them.
