Helping Louisianians Affected by the Flood

Starting this evening (8/15), Move Ya Brass will be collecting items critically needed for our neighbors who were affected by the flooding over the last few days at each of our events. We particularly like to help two of our own Krewe members who were directly impacted by the flood. Donations can be dropped off during the following events:
