Join the Hot 8 Brass Band in their own homes as they record a special version of Love Will Tear Us Apart for the Jazz Foundation Musicians’ Emergency Fund Concert. Beyond the band’s affection for 1970s Britain, the parallels between the tragic stories of Ian Curtis, previous Hot 8 members and young creatives across the industry anchor the Hot 8’s attachment to Love Will Tear Us Apart; “Love tears us apart as we see friends pass and go, but of course they’re still part of us and the love we feel collectively,” said the band.
Of the performance, The Jazz Foundation of America said “In demanding times, musicians keep us grounded. They call up the strong, beautiful parts of our spirits. But without a single gig taking place during this crisis, there are no clubs to go to, no concerts to attend. The sudden standstill has left thousands of vulnerable artists in a state of financial free fall as they live gig to gig and month to month. The need is unprecedented but reminds us of mission and purpose to provide emergency assistance in time of crisis.”
