Whole Foods To Donate 5% to New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic

For numerous local musicians and music industry types (you don’t actually have to be a musician to take advantage of the services), the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic has literally been a lifesaver.  With Charity Hospital, the resource of choice (irony intended) for local artists before Katrina, still out of action, the clinic has helped thousands deal with day-to-day health issues and more serious concerns.  They have always operated on a slim budget and with the loss of a key grant pending, their very existence is threatened.  All day today the Whole Foods Market will donate 5% of their net proceeds to the clinic.  Since this is New Orleans, there will also be live music all afternoon.  Here’s the schedule- 12 PM- the Pfister Sisters, 1 PM- Armand St. Martin’s C’est Bon Jazz Trio, 2 PM- Charles Moore, 3 PM- the Tremé Brass Band and 5 PM- Ready Teddy and the Swampdaddys.
