Benefit for The Roots of Music w/Stanton Moore & Funky But Better @ Beekman‏ Beer Garden

Come Join us with Stanton Moore as Master of the Ceremony in a special performance of Funky But Better featuring Big Sam (of Sam's Funky Nation), Ivan Neville (of Dumpstaphunk), Stanton Moore (of Galactic), Eric McFadden (of PFunk & Animal), and Doug Wimbish (of Living Colour) to help support the Roots of Music at the Beekman on September 25th at 7PM. General Admission $35 and VIP $100 includes Nawlin's Buffet, Complimentary Red Bull, Absolut, and Bulleit Bourbon cocktails, Godiva Chocolate Gift Bags & Treme Recordings.
The Roots of Music’s mission founded by Derrick Tabb of Rebirth Brass Band is to teach, support, and empower New Orleans’ youth through music education, academic support, and personal mentorship, while preserving and promoting New Orleans’ unique musical and cultural heritage. The goal is to give the youth of New Orleans the resources to live positive, productive, and self-reliant lives in community with others.
The Roots of Music is a year-round program for low-income, 9-to-14-year-olds that fills a void in our city’s middle school music education programs.  Once an integral part of New Orleans middle schools, after Katrina many schools discontinued their marching bands and music programs for this age group.
