Download a Song to Provide Hurricane Katrina Relief
I have made my song, Mercy, available for download. I will donate the proceeds to the Red Cross. Watching the Katrina coverage made me wish that there was more that I could do. This is an effort to raise more funds than I was able to donate on my own when the levees first broke and swamped New Orleans, and Katrina's storm surge swept away so many Gulf towns. To check it out, please go to http://www.ericdelore.com/katrina.html.
The cost of the download is $2.00. I will forward $1.50 of each download to the Red Cross. Nearly all of the remaining 50 cents goes to transaction fees. I have clips in various formats of the song up there so you can hear a bit before downloading it.
If this approach does not appeal to you, another alternative is to go to https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation-form.asp and donate directly to the Red Cross.
Thank you very much. New Orleans and the South have given so much to us musically. Here is a chance to let music give something back.

Kennan's Dream Gig
One of my favorite bass players, Kennan Shaw, just got back from a dream gig in Lugano, Switzerland playing the Blues to Bop festival. He got paid to go to Europe and play. Yow! Looks like he had some nice digs. A far cry from some of the dives we played together back home. Nice to see him getting some sweet shows these days.
