#64BigBandProject Unites Musicians Against the Spread of Coronavirus

Sixty Four Music has launched a charitable initiative to fight back against Covid-19. The #64BigBandProject was created by the team to raise some much needed funding for the organisations working against the spread of coronavirus and to raise awareness for musicians and performers who are at home with fewer opportunities to work.

Singers and musicians from across the globe unite to perform with the Sixty Four Music team, creating an ever growing performance of Primal Scream’s ‘Movin On Up’.

The independent music company founder, Nick Payne comments: "We’ll post regular updates as the project progresses on our website and social media channels, along with a video of all the performers that have made it possible."

The Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) Coronavirus Crisis Appeal will be the main charity for the initiative.

Payne adds: "Coronavirus has effected so many individuals and businesses globally and as an industry of innovators, we felt we had to do something to help those working on the frontline of this awful disease. We hope that this project will raise much needed funds, along with spreading a little joy. It’s also important to remember the creators, whose livelihoods are threatened during this challenging time."

The project launched with 23 musicians on Friday May 8th and will keep increasing in numbers as the project evolves. Since the first video went live on YouTube receiving over 500 views in its first 12 hours of being online, an additional 27 performances have been received making the current total 50.
