On Saturday, September 10th, local music fans will gather at The Cabooze on The West Bank and contribute donations for the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Fund to aid victims of Katrina. The Southern Baptist Convention's Tennessee state unit is currently on site in New Orleans providing mobile kitchens, shower units, clean up and recovery to residents of the city. Southern Baptists are the third largest disaster relief force in the country.
Members of local act Jack Brass Band and The Cabooze will accept donations for OPERATION BRASS AID on behalf of the SBC. Jack Brass and The Cabooze have hosted many well-known acts from New Orleans and are committed to helping out their hometown in this time of need. We would like to show our friends from Orleans and The Rebirth Brass Band what a charitable group of music fans we have in the Twin Cities. Last time Rebirth came thru Minneapolis, over a dozen fans from the 6th & 7th wards and the Treme neighborhood followed them to the Cabooze bringing the crescent city's brass band party atmosphere. Now we want to give a little something back to these good people.
Tickets $12. 18+ Doors 8:30, show 9:30
