Kevin Saunders Hayes – All Instruments

The Story

Open Not Open, the newest in my on-going weekly series of original pieces to help you dance your way through the pandemic. Once a week, I hand make a spanky new tune (with love) just for you. Bespoke music – it’s all the rage.

States are open. Now they’re not open. Sort of open. Definitely not open.

NYC (and a lot of other places) went through a lot of pain these past few months, and it’s sad, frustrating and heartbreaking to watch as the South and West get slammed by this devious virus. When… they just didn’t have to.

<Soapbox> Wear a mask. Wash your hands. </End of soapbox>

Even in NYC we have to be diligent. There are lots of people walking around these days like “it’s all over”. (Did I mention wearing a mask?)

Anyway, at the risk of being a little preachy this week, I wrote “Open, Not Open” just for you, and you, and you, and you. You… not so much.

And, if you haven’t seen the new Disney commercial about the reopening of Disneyworld – there were originally a few mistakes in it. This guy fixed them. Enjoy:
