need musicians for the 45th anniversary of the Upstairs Lounge fire that killed 32 people in New Orleans 25 June 1973. open to any/all musicians. * will post a set list soon.

Meeting at the entrance of Armstrong Park at 5:20 for a 6:15pm parade permit. if you want to attend the memorial service… The Interfaith Memorial Service will be at St. Mark’s UMC 5:00 pm (1130 N. Rampart) We’ll then second line from Armstrong Park to the site of the Lounge.

Band Attire:
Pair A Dice Tumbler Summer Casual Pink/White/Khaki with white hats/scarves. ie… you can wear any one or all 3 colors of the scheme I selected… remembering this is essentially a jazz funeral… ie… no pimp suits or costumes. I'm foregoing trad black/whites for the cooler option being this is June...as well as the nature of the event.

I will have the trike there… there will be some beer and water… but this really isn't that kind of event to get loaded on beer so please… be conscious of that. I did ask and will be getting a nominal $50 fee to cover our basic ice n water from St. Marks Methodist church.

I am NOT asking for helpers on this one… other than my trike lady, Ms. Constance. WE should be done by 7:30.
