musician friends,

Jimmy Burdine here, my wife Ginna works at Georgetown High School, and one of the new students there is a New Orleans evacuee who lost everything. He played in a band, and I am looking to see if anyone has an old electric guitar and/or amp to donate or loan out. I guess any accessories would be welcome too. Let me know via email and pass on to any other musician friends.
