Musicians Come Together to Help Louisiana Flood Victims – Aug 23

“The current flooding in Louisiana is the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Superstorm Sandy,” the American Red Cross reported. 40,000 homes have been damaged, and over 4,000 people are in shelters, many of them children, the elderly, and disabled.

Jason DeCristofaro has enlisted the help of Cam MacQueen of THE BLOCK off biltmore and several musicians who are volunteering their time to help put together a benefit Tuesday night (August 23, from 8 PM to 11 PM), to raise funds for the Red Cross Flood Relief Program.
