Today, we are super duper psyched to bring you a video from the most recent Musack event! Musack raises money to benefit music education and every year they throw a show to help out the youth through music education programs and instrument donations. Founded on Nantucket by tv writer Donick Cary (Simpsons, Parks and Recreation, Have a Good Trip) after a rash of teen suicides in his former high school fifteen years ago, Musack has grown to support programs coast to coast and beyond, encouraging kids to share their voice through music.
Earlier this month, Musack hosted a tribute to Terry Hall, the sadly departed singer of The Specials. As part of the event, a bunch of musicians got together to perform a moving version of the Special's classic, "Enjoy Yourself." The mega-group included Horace Panter (The Specials), Lynval Golding (The Specials), Hannah Hu (The Specials), Nikolaj Torp Larsen (The Specials), Kenrick Rowe (The Specials), Jesse Wagner (The Aggrolites), Nate Albert (Mighty Mighty Bosstones), JG Goetchius (Mighty Mighty Bosstones), Eitan Avineri (Western Standard Ska Orchestra), and Rob Verdugo (Western Standard Ska Orchestra).
Get ready to cry. The video was shot and produced by Josh Roush, who wrote and directed the very cool punk movie Wrong Reasons.
As a BONUS, we are pairing this video up with a video of the same song as performed by the specials at Musack in 2022- Terry Hall's last ever performance… backed by Tim Armstrong and members of The Interrupters! Now the waterworks are really turned up! If you want to see the true power of music, watch either of these videos!
