Benny Benack III goes "Viral" with his new track!

"Put a Mask On Your Face"

I've kept busy during the quarantine by self-producing a one-man-band parody of the standard "Put On a Happy Face"..."Put a Mask On Your Face".

Bottom-right: new 2020 BB3 T-shirt design by Valeria Truccia...coming soon!

Here is my new tune via Youtube!
"Put a Mask On Your Face"
Share some joy!

Corona has changed life in an instant...

I was amongst the first people to have work cancelled due to Corona virus. I was supposed to be in Shanghai last month w/my band, but China was way ahead of the curve as far as Covid-19 is concerned. Now everyone in the US is focused on how to #flattenthecurve as social distancing and shutdowns are everywhere (and unfortunately unnecessary to protect those we love).

Cooped up in my apartment like everyone else in NYC, I spent my entire first day under the quarantine working on this simple video to lift people's spirits in these dark times. I uploaded it in the middle of the night to Instagram, Youtube & Facebook, and this morning it took off:

  • feature "Quarantine or Quarantune?": - Nate Chinen (formally NYTimes)
  • Played on WBGO 88.3 FM radio by host Keanna Faircloth
  • Shared hundreds of times on Instagram, Facebook & Youtube, viewed thousands of times in less than a day!

I fear we are just at the beginning of a long, dark stretch for all of us with even more restrictions to come, upending our daily lives for who knows how long. I wish safety and health for all of you, and in these trying times, I hope a little bit of humor, joy and levity helps you get through it all. We need music now more than ever! If you want to help someone with some "Corona Blues", share this song!

Take care and stay in touch - I love you all,

@bbjazziii: Instagram goodies!
