Musicians Benefit/Second Line for Guitar Bo

Sale price Price $10.00 Regular price

The 100 Men Hall will host a musician's benefit and second line in honor of Isaac J. "Guitar Bo" Darensbourg (11/18/1937-06/19/2019).

Like many musicians and performers who enrich the community's lives with talent and skill, Guitar Bo's funeral expenses exceed his family's resources. Guitar Bo was honored earlier this year in a mural on the side of the 100 Men Hall where he played frequently with his earlier bands (the Claudettes Combo in the early sixties), and with his wife, Ms. Dee.

The 100 Men Hall was built by the African American community in the late 1800s with the purpose of raising money to bury the dead in a respectable manner.

Please join us on Saturday, July 20, for a benefit fundraiser to raise the burial funds needed for Guitar Bo's family and to celebrate his life with a second line.

Time and more details to be announced. If you are a musician and would like to participate in the benefit, please contact Scott MacDonald or Rachel Dangermond.
