Success Story

Refurbished Instruments Delivered to Denham Springs Jr. High

Tipitina’s Foundation had the honor of delivering over a dozen refurbished instruments and cases to Denham Springs Jr. High. These instruments were damaged during the floods that engulfed the Baton Rouge area in late 2016.┬áThe Instrument Repair Program led by Stafford Agee of Rebirth Brass Band was founded in conjunction with Instruments A Comin’ to refurbish used instruments and place them right back into the band room.

“Thank you just doesn’t seem adequate. Getting these instruments is a huge help to our program. Missing those instruments was like missing people to play certain positions on the football field. I had no way to replace nor repair those instruments without your help.┬áThe Tipitinas foundation is now a part of the DSJH Band family.” -Ryan Benoit Band Director at Denham Springs Jr. High
