THE NEW ORLEANS MUSICIANS TOMB: Friends of New Orleans Cemeteries has 
announced that the long-awaited New Orleans Musicians Tomb is now being restored. 
Situated in St. Louis Cemetery #1, the tomb belongs to the legendary Barbarin 
family, which is donating half of the family's tomb for the interment of 
destitute musicians. The first musician to be buried in the tomb, after restoration, 
will be Lloyd Washington, a former member of the Ink Spots. Until the tomb is 
restored, Washington's body will remain in the Mother-In-Law Lounge, sharing 
the space with the wax effigy of Ernie K-Doe. Any living musicians interested in 
securing space in the New Orleans Musicians Tomb should contact Rob Florence
