Hurricane Katrina Benefit
The Manship Theatre in The Shaw Center
Wednesday, Oct. 26
7p.m. - 9:30p.m.
Ladies and Gents,
Man, do we have a heck of a show coming for you. I've been working with Brian McWhorter, jazz professor and trumpet teacher at L.S.U., for the past few weeks. He called to get us involved in this series of benefit concerts over at The Manship Theatre at The Shaw Center in downtown Baton Rouge. I've hired an all-star line up for this. Besides myself on trombone and Patrick Borderlon
on guitar, the rest of the ensemble will be from New Orleans. The fellas have been displaced, personally ravaged by this storm, and have lost a lot more than myself and everyone here in B.R. The positive pitch on this is that WE WILL JAM AND KICK IT! The following musicians from The Vivaz Latin Band will be joining me onstage: Rik Fletcher
- Keyboards; Dave Brouillette
- Bass; Donald Jarquin
- Congas; and Abdel Jarquin
- Timbales/Percussion. This will be a free show and more of a concert setting, so PLEASE spread the word and come on out to support not just the band, but these awesome people joining me on stage so we can show you what hope and power is all about!
