The New Orleans Brass Band Musicians Relief Fund fills the financial gap left by cancelled gigs to support New Orleans’ brass band musicians, their families, and the tradition they carry during the COVID-19 crisis.
New Orleans brass bands bring us together. They organize us into exuberance, bring us through our grief for loved ones passed, lead us down the street with high and fast stepping. While our venues are closed and our streets are silent, it’s our turn to organize for them. The New Orleans Brass Band Musicians Relief Fund organizes funds to support the people who give life to this essential tradition. The funds go directly into the hands of New Orleans brass band musicians, so they can cover their basic expenses during this time.
