I like writing, but I like ACTION even better.

In this spirit, FoodMusicJustice is bringing Jason Slack and the Slick Slack Brass Band to New York over the 4th of July weekend.

It’s the first phase of “Two Rivers, One Heart,” the Hudson River/Mississippi River Cultural Collaboration Project: Music in the Service of Justice for New Orleans. A mouthful to be sure, but it sums up what we’re all about.

We want to remind New Yorkers and the rest of the world that New Orleans is still alive and well and still in need of help not in the form of handouts, but in the form of simple justice. The levees were the federal government’s responsibility and cleaning up the results of their failure is a federal responsibility too.

The Slick Slack Brass Band will be performing at the following places:

Wed. July 4th

3:00 PM to 5:00 PM Union Square Station (near Virgin Music), Manhattan
8:00 PM Rose Live Music, 345 Grand Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn


Thurs. July 5th

1:00 PM Roberto Clemente Square – South Bronx – SoBRO’s Weed & Seed event
7:00 PM J. Maxon’s Bar (take the 6 Train to 138th and 3rd)

Fri. July 6th

5:00 PM – 9:00 PM Hudson Haborfest, City of Hudson, New York

Take Amtrak from Penn Station to Hudson, NY (two hours)

Sat. July 7th

5:00 PM – 9:00 PM Hudson Haborfest, City of Hudson, New York

More about the band and the Hudson River/Mississippi River Collaboration in future posts.
