Yes Virginia Reunites with Bill Withers Tribute

If you lived in NYC during the late 1990s and early 2000s, you might remember my funk band Yes Virginia.  Our recording Overeasy is still one of my favorite albums I’ve ever done.  Though we’ve all been working on other projects in past decades, my bandmates and I have stayed in touch.  For years, in our previous band Random House of Soul, we often performed our rendition of Bill Withers’ Kissing My Love.  Withers’ recent sad passing incited us to reunite to record this song for the first time.  Tracked remotely, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, this video serves as a reminder of the importance of staying connected with friends and loved ones.  And, hopefully, it’ll get you dancing and brighten your day!

Recorded by and featuring: Bennett Paster, Matt StoneWhynot Jansveld and Jamie Moore, with fond memories of our fallen bandmates Andrew Frawley and Jill Seifers Walsh.  Mixed by Bennett Paster and Mastered by Whynot Jansveld.  Video edited by Matt Stone.

No matter how far apart we are, music has a great way of bringing us together. #YesVirginia.  Add us to your favorite playlist on Spotify, Apple Music and more:
