Best Harmonious Convergence

Austin's Music Community Reaches Out to Evacuee Musicians

Where do we begin? This is the movement that inspired the theme of this year's "Best of Austin." As Katrina evacuees headed for Central Texas, our city sprang to action. Folks of all stripes pulled together to carry out one of this town's greatest ever human relief efforts. Our local music community was at the forefront. Please forgive us, as this list is nowhere near complete. Here, we wish to specifically acknowledge the folks below for reaching out to fellow NOLA and Gulf Coast musicians, offering them solace, instruments, and in some cases the space to create. And create they did. We are grateful for this coming together. The list below is but a first note in what we hope will be an ongoing, righteous symphony.
