Our hearts go out to Doug Potter and his family. Doug was the victim of a vicious assault in the French Quarter earlier this week. He is a bass player that regularly plays with Steamboat Willie at Cafe’ Beignet on Bourbon Street. Our Jazz On The Rocks tour occasionally swings by Cafe’ Beignet during one of Steamboat Willie’s earlier sets, so this one hits close to home.
… senseless tragedy.
Update on how to help out Doug: This more recent article mentions that contributions for medical expenses can be made to the Doug Potter Fund at any Capital One branch. There will also be a benefit at d.b.a. on Sunday, February 9th, starting at 2:00 P.M.
