NEW ORLEANS - Taking the focus off violence and enriching the lives of children through music by providing musical instruments to the youth of New Orleans - that's the mission of Trumpets Not Guns.
The group is holding its annual gala to raise money to get guns out of the hands of the youth and replace them with musical instruments.
John and Lisa Grillot and gala performer Travis Hill of Treme Funktet were in the studio with more information..
The gala is Saturday at Republic. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m.
