The New Birth Brass Band, the Stooges Brass Band, the Sixth Ward Brass Band and Corey Henry (Galactic) will join together on Friday, Nov. 2 for a special fundraiser/memorial concert honoring the memory of NOLA musician Bruce Gaten who passed last week.
Gaten was known in the New Orleans music scene as the trombonist for the Lil Rascals Brass Band, and the $1o cover for the memorial performance will go toward the musician’s final resting place.
“New Orleans is mourning the loss of Bruce Gaten of the legendary Lil Rascals Brass Band, who passed away last week,” the event’s Facebook page reads. “Everyone is invited to Vaughan’s to celebrate his life and raise money for his funeral expenses… Please share with your friends and come out to celebrate the life of a great New Orleans musician.”
The show will span from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Vaughan’s Lounge in New Orleans.
Tickets can be purchased at the door.
