Andy Frasco has shared a video featuring a who’s who of musicians from across the jam spectrum all singing The Pointer Sisters‘ “I’m So Excited” at home with varying degrees of clothes on.
While musicians and fans alike are trying to keep sane during self-induced quarantines brought on by the spread of the novel coronavirus, Frasco tried to make the most of it and brighten everyone’s day. On Friday, he issued a new challenge on his Twitter, “the dance naked in your house to pointer sisters challenge.” This seemed like typical Frasco just needing some way to expel some pent up energy and that we just needed to let him tucker himself out.
Then, on Sunday, Frasco posted a video to his social media that featured a stacked lineup and, considering how starved we are for live music, should probably count as a festival of some sort. From Brendan Bayliss and Ryan Stasik of Umphrey’s McGee to Marcus King, Shira Elias of Turkuaz, an exceedingly-confident Karl Denson, Jennifer Hartswick, Lyle Divinsky of The Motet, and Greg Ormont of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, as well as a host of others, all of these musicians decided to join in Frasco’s fun.
Check out the full video below.
Andy Frasco also delivered some parting words of wisdom at the end of the video, “Make the best of it…STAY THE [F—] HOME so we can party again soon.” Here’s hoping to seeing Frasco, and everyone else’s, onstage antics as soon as possible.
