Brian Stokes Mitchell played it tonight. It looks like 2 octaves of a piano keyboard (Just looked like that, maybe it wasn't a full 2 octaves or maybe a little more.) There's a mouthpiece on one end and the sound comes out the other. It sounds very similar to a harmonica. What could this instrument be?

n/m. I found it. It's called a melodica.

I played in a melodica choir when I was a kid. Except we called them melodians.
