A curbside band called The Crazy 88’s has been performing on the stoop of 66 West 88th Street on Sundays at 7pm (they begin to play just as the 7pm clap begins to die down). The band says they’ll continue these performances until the crisis comes to an end.
Here they are performing a cover of “The Weight”, which was originally written by The Band and has since been performed by many groups including The Grateful Dead.

The band has also put out an invitation for musicians who want to join their jam sessions. If you’re interested, please send a direct message to @1nystan on Instagram.
The band is also considering doing Wednesday evening concerts in the nearby future.
