On his upcoming Repair Mission Trip, Mike Corrigan, a.k.a The Horn Doctor, will be rolling out his most extensive repair project since his first trip to New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

Horn Doctor Inc., Kansas City Musicians, and New Orleans native, Stafford Agee of the Grammy-award winning Rebirth Brass Band. Stafford has been apprenticing with Corrigan on each of Corrigan’s previous trips to New Orleans and will be officially dubbed a Doctor of his practice.
Agee, who has already been hustling to fill a gap in downtown New Orleans where musical instrument repair services are needed, is officially announcing the opening of his own Rebirth Music Center and Repair Shop. Acting as an affiliate of B.A.C. Horn Doctor Inc., and, his store will help meet the needs of musicians of all ages and experience levels. B.A.C.

We are inviting local school bands to perform at the Wolves Den while the Horn Doctor crew provides students with any needed repairs. All musicians are invited to come throughout the day, and are asking any professional musicians to stick around for an evening performance and benefit serving local music-education causes including, Sweet Home New Orleans, Roots of Music and Trombone Shorty's Horns for Schools.
The benefit concert will commence at 8:00pm and features several of New Orleans finest musicians, including, Kermit Ruffins and his BBQ Swingers, Rebirth Brass Band, Baby Boyz Brass Band, YoJimbo, Music Street, Saint Bell, NOLA's Big Sam Williams, and Loren Pickford. Making the trip from Kansas City is Kansas City's finest, Project H with Ryan Heinlein and Josh Williams, and out-of-town musicians Joe Beaty of NYC and Cory Distefano from Nashville, TN. Keep an eye out for other musicians or bands who may show up unannounced for this first ever event! Audience members will hear the B.A.C. horns in action alongside the headlining bands, particularly the popular Artist B.A.C. trombones and trumpets designed by The Horn Doctor himself.
Rarely do great music, helping musicians and free instrument repairs all take place in one fun-filled evening. We look forward to seeing you and 15 of your closest friends as we support these 3 great causes!
