A lot of you know Jon Gross, the Tuba player for the Loose Marbles and the Panorama Jazz Band. Unfortunately while Jon was on tour over Mardi Gras, he returned home the day of Lundi Gras to find most of his possessions stolen, including:
Gateway Laptop $800
Sweetwater Creation Station music workstation computer $2200
Tascam midi interface for above computer $150
set of 2 studio reference speakers by M-Audio $150
Boss Multi Effects bass guitar pedal $500
Computer printer Cannon Mp-350 $200
27" RCA television $350
Stainless Steel Chain Necklace that was his dad's... priceless
Schwinn Heavy Duty Bike $400
Bike Trailer $200
things like shampoo, soap, toilet paper, groceries including frozen food
They also stole his 1920's Helicon tuba and his 3/4 Tuba, however both were recovered at the Bargain Center in the Bywater.
Jon has brought so much joy to us through his talented musicianship that it would be nice to give back. He is working hard to rebuild his life, however as most of you know, the live jazz industry in New Orleans is suffering. Any small contribution or donation is greatly appreciated.
