Musicians Village at the Bayou Boogaloo!!!!!!
I'm really getting excited about the Bayou Bougaloo this Saturday on the Bayou St. John in New Orleans all day til 10pm. They have added an additional music stage. I have been working on these Musicians Village interpretations for the past month. They represent the homes that Habitat for Humanity came in and built for the displaced music community in the lower 9th ward. What's really special is that the houses were built by volunteers from all over the world who came in and put in their sweat equity. Its special to me too because one of my former students who is in a local and very hot brass band moved into his first home in the village late last summer.
That was such an exciting moment. Anyway, the resin is drying on these babies so they'll be ready for the show. Hope to see yall there!
