Before the world went into lock down a month ago, Austin rock ’n’ soul band, Black Pumas was on a hot streak, swiftly selling out concerts around the world.
Like so many of us, the band members are now social distancing at home, but they’ve teamed up with Toyota and Fender Next to present a special livestream on Thursday.
Band members will be performing stripped down versions of their songs.
"We're just excited to be able to play our songs for people again," guitarist and producer, Adrian Quesada said on Monday. "We haven't even played together since we got back from our European tour. (We’ve) been taking the distancing seriously. This will be our first time in a room together."
Toyota will be donating $20,000 to the MusicCares Coronavirus Relief Fund as part of the event and viewers will also be encouraged to contribute.
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. on Thursday and you can tune in on the band’s Facebook or YouTube page.
