Thanks for Keeping the Help Rolling in, 4 Years Later

The New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund, a 501(c)3 grass roots charity, is grateful to those who have contributed three pianos with one on the way, including two baby grands (one to a teacher from Pearl River). We have also contributed evacuation vehicles, guitars, horns, drums, concertinas and more. We're sorting through 10,000 strings donated by Taylor Guitars. Hallmark Magazine recommended donating instruments to displaced musicians (tip 2), and so did Blog Action Day ( tip 10). Visit our Impact Award nominated MySpace page for details.

Over four years post-Katrina, our supporters are deeply appreciated.

The 501(c)3 New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund pays no office rent, utilizes volunteer social workers and hires only two employees to help your donation dollar go further. Founded by and for displaced musicians, the Fund has helped hundreds of still-displaced musicians with funds, instruments and housing as they continue to rebuild their lives. We primarily receive donated instruments these days, and find each of them a good home.

This is the NOMRF video featuring the late Barry Cowsill's "Kid" and REM's "South Central Rain". It kicks off with Barry jugging bubbles, a very Barry thing to do if you knew him. Our founder Jeff Beninato, former bass player for the dB's, was in The Stragglers with Cowsill. The New Wave Brass Band second lined at Barry's memorial and our Fund was glad to be able to replace the band's instruments after the storm, along with others.
