Krasno and Deitch to Sub for Washington and Batiste
Adam Deitch on Jam Cruise
New York’s Sullivan Hall will host a benefit for The New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation this evening. New Orleans natives Walter “Wolfman” Washington and Russell Batiste were scheduled to perform at the event but are now unable to make it to New York due to yesterday’s snowstorm. Lettuce bandmates Eric Krasno and Adam Deitch have volunteered their time, however, and will now appear at the event. The rest of the show’s lineup includes: John ‘Papa’ Gros (Papa Grows Funk), Andy Hess (Gov’t Mule/Black Crowes), Christine Ohlman (“Beehive Queen” from SNL Band), Henry Butler and Justin Marcus.
