NEW ORLEANS MUSICIANS RELIEF FUND
ANNOUNCES NEW MUSIC COMPILATION AND
ROCK STAR AMP AUCTION TO BENEFIT DISPLACED MUSICIANS
International rock stars and brilliant New Orleans musicians have all come together to help save the music. This
download compilation combines national and local acts because not only is
New Orleans the birthplace of jazz, in the 1950's it was the rock & roll
hit maker of the world. The talent is all still there, after two years of
struggling to make their way back.
The New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund, Inc., a grass roots certified 501c(3)
founded by and for displaced musicians, has sent grants to hundreds of
displaced New Orleans musicians to help them get home, replace gear or
survive where they are now. All of this has been done with no corporate or
As Dr. John said at a NOMRF benefit, "It's coming from people that care
about people. And that's what it's really supposed to be about."
With songs from Dr. John to Ian Hunter, the New Orleans Musicians Relief
Fund offers the best hour of music relating to New Orleans available, with 100%
of the proceeds benefiting NOMRF's efforts. Hundreds of grants have gone out
thanks to international individual contributions, and this download will
help that continue with the Katrina Anniversary coming around again.
Little Steven's Underground Garage is helping kick off the ReDefine 8/29
Campaign, and YepRoc Records is offering Ian Hunter's signed lyric sheet
with email registration. Songs are .99 apiece and downloadable on any
platform. For the ReDefine 8/29 commemoration next month, the Fund will be
auctioning off a Headstrong amp with guitar legends including Kenny Wayne
Shepard, Mike Mills of REM and Ian Hunter signing it. Details are available
