North Texas Music Business Professionals Helping Musicians and Music Business Professionals Displaced From Hurricane Katrina
Several North Texas area professional music business companies are joining together to do something special for the displaced musicians from Hurricane Katrina.
So far, there has been a great amount of interest in the project. Already 16 local Recording Studios that normally compete for business in a tough market have committed to join forces along with their staff producers and engineers, musicians and bands, graphic designers and printing companies, duplication facilities, and mastering engineers. They have agreed to waive all charges, donating their services to raise funds to help replace instruments and equipment so that displaced musicians from the New Orleans area are able to get back to work.
Preliminary plans are to record one song at each studio. Artists will be a combination of displaced musicians now in the area and local studio musicians and bands, focusing on the music that draws us to New Orleans. The concept is to represent the same mixture of musical genres you would hear walking down Bourbon Street. Product should be available before Thanksgiving, with details about artists and availability online at www.NTxMusicBizForNO.com .
