No Cover, That's right FREE
The Rockin’ Jake Band’s “Save The Clinic” tour kicks off June 12 in Denver, Colorado and continues through September. This all-star, funky, harmonica-led blues and zydeco band will be raising funds and awareness for the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic (NOMC) in seventeen states from coast to coast.
Since its founding in 1998, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic has been an innovative, not-for-profit, occupational medicine and wellness partnership, offering affordable, comprehensive health care to the New Orleans community's most precious resource: its musicians. The NOMC is a program of the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation (NOMAF). Collaborative health partners are LSU Healthcare Network, Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans, and St. Anna's Mission to Musicians and Medical Mission.
The clinic is losing federal funds that cover over 90% of its operating costs. As a former patient of the clinic, and an ardent believer and supporter of the Clinic’s mission, Rockin’ Jake wants to get the word out about the loss of funding. His personal mission is to raise awareness of the Clinic and its needs, and help provide important healthcare services for his fellow musicians. Therefore, a portion of The Rockin’ Jake Band’s merchandise sales (Badmouth Hot Sauce, T-Shirts and CDs) from every show this summer will be donated to the NOMC, to help fellow musicians continue to receive care at the Clinic.
Based in New Orleans since 1990, Rockin' Jake relocated briefly to Dallas, TX after being flooded out by Hurricane Katrina, and then settled in St. Louis, MO. Rockin' Jake has been hailed by many as one of the premier harmonica players in the country.
As Rockin’ Jake and his band bring the flavors of New Orleans Blues and Zydeco coast to coast, come on out and support live music and help Save the Musicians’ Clinic! To make a direct donation to NOMC, go to www.savetheclinic.org
