well my band had a benefit in november to raise money for Tipitina's Foundation (a charity for New Orleans musicians) and since then we've been trying to spread the word that there are many musicians (as well as just plain old folks) in New Orleans and the gulf coast area that still need our help. we have a webpage at http://www.myspace.com/thecooljerks
that besides shameless promotion of a bunch of middle aged musicians is primarly concerned with how people can help New Orleans musicians. if any one is interested feel free to check it out and get in touch with us. to see all the content you have to be a myspace member (no big deal) but you can get most of it just by seeing the main page. if your interested in staging a benefit in your hometown feel free to get in touch with us and we will help in any way that we can and as we like to say
"YES WE CAN: IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO HELP"
thanks for taking the time to read this
