THE DB’s OFFER MP3 TRACK TO BENEFIT NEW ORLEANS MUSICIANS RELIEF FUNDNGS

Bookmark and Share

RALEIGH, N.C. -- On the heels of their first live shows in more than 20 years, The dB's are offering their newly recorded, previously unreleased version of the Motown classic "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted" to help raise money for the displaced musicians of New Orleans affected by Hurricane Katrina. The track is accessible at http://www.ThedBs.com/katrina

Not one but two members of The dB's have been made homeless by Katrina. Peter Holsapple and his family are fine, but their home is almost certainly beyond salvaging. Former member Jeff Beninato is also fine but had to evacuate; his second-floor apartment may or may not have escaped damage, he doesn't know yet -- and may not for a long time.

They don't need immediate financial help, but many New Orleans musicians do. Jeff Beninato met with some great people at Chase Bank in Chicago and, in conjunction with New Orleans Director of Music Development Scott Aiges, has set up the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund. Donations to the fund will go directly toward getting struggling musical artists back on their feet. It will provide money for food and shelter to those without, and hopefully replace musical equipment that was lost.

"What Becomes of the Broken Hearted"
performed by The dB's

Peter Holsapple: lead vocal, piano, organ
Gene Holder: electric bass
Will Rigby: drums
Chris Stamey: guitars and harmonies

Strings and additional Leslie organ, Brandon Bush

Initially recorded by George Cowan at Water Music, Hoboken, NJ
Produced and mixed by Chris Stamey at Modern Recording, Chapel Hill, NC
Mastered by Brent Lambert, Kitchen Mastering
Executive production by Jefferson Holt
An Orange Sound Production (c) (p) 2005

Written by James Dean, Paul Riser, and William Weatherspoon
Published by Stone Agate Music BMI/Jobete Music Co. ASCAP

This song, originally a hit by Jimmy Ruffin in 1966, was recorded January 2005 along with the already available "World to Cry" and several other originals.

Those interested in hearing the song and supporting the cause may make a contribution using their Visa or Mastercard via PayPal.

A minimum contribution of $5 is suggested, but fans are urged to give whatever they can afford.

Upon making a PayPal donation, donors will receive a link to an mp3 of a brand-new recording by the dBs, "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted”.

The dB’s (Chris Stamey, Peter Holsapple, Gene Holder and Will Rigby) have reunited for a new recording and a handful of live appearances including Chicago (The Hideout and the House of Blues) on Sept. 17 and Hoboken, NJ (Maxwell’s) on Sept. 19-20. Updates are posted at http://www.thedbs.com
