New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund Announces New Music Compilation
To Benefit Displaced Musicians
/24-7PressRelease/ - CHICAGO, IL, August 06, 2007 -- International rock stars and brilliant New
Orleans musicians have all come together to help save the music. This

New Orleans the birthplace of jazz, in the 1950's it was the rock and roll

of the proceeds benefiting NOMRF's efforts. Hundreds of grants have gone out
thanks to international individual contributions, and this download will
help that continue with the Katrina Anniversary coming around again.
Little Steven's Underground Garage is helping kick off the ReDefine 8/29
Campaign, and YepRoc Records is offering Ian Hunter's signed lyric sheet
with email registration. Songs are .99 apiece and downloadable on any
platform. For the ReDefine 8/29 commemoration next month, the Fund will be
