Dr John (and LBR) will be playing Jazz Fest this year – Help us ask Shell to Hear the Music

From Dr John and GRN:

Dr. John here from my backyard in Nawlins.  I like sittin’ here and I hate havin’ to evacuate to some place I don’t wanna’ be.  We never even heard that word growing up here.  That’s because we used to be safe until somebody stole our wetlands. That’s the only thing been protecting us all these years and we gotta’ put ’em back out there so I don’t gotta’ get up and go over and over again.

I tell you, the good doctor’s got a cure for fixin’ those wetlands…collect the money from the oil companies who destroyed over half of them, and use it to let our mighty Mississippi do its thing, build land, au naturale.

For some reason though Shell and their friends in the industry don’t think they owe anything, so we gotta’ let them know we’re wise to ’em and want action now.  A good place to let them know is at this year’s Jazz Fest.  Shell acts like it’s their fest now, but our Jazz Fest did just fine for decades without ’em.

So we gonna’ be flying a plane around the Fairgrounds draggin’ a banner “Shell Hear The Music – Fix The Coast You Broke!”   Come on out to the Fest and wave at it with me.  I’d appreciate if you’d contribute to keep the plane flying as long as possible at http://www.healthygulf.org/shellpays Every single tax deductible dollar will go to more airtime for more eyeballs. So join me and Mr. Bill and Gulf Restoration Network and many others to send this message to Shell.  I’ll be tossin some of my gris gris on the grounds, too.

Love and posterity for all y’all,
Dr. John
