After Hurricane Katrina devastated the city, the Foundation responded by rebuilding New Orleans’ music culture. Initally, the Foundation addressed the immediate needs of our exiled musicians and allowed them to carry on with their lives.

Now the foundation is using the legendary music club, Tipitina’s Uptown, as the center of its relief efforts by hosting a newly-opened Music Co-op Office that allows musicians to conduct their business activities during the daytime, free legal and accounting seminars, free music lessons for music students, regular Master Seminars, and help with housing information.

So far the foundation has given away over $500,000 of new instruments. Through these efforts, the Tipitina’s Foundation is saving the musical traditions of New Orleans.
