This is  the ONLY ADD to help  MUSICIANS I have been able to find:
I suggest  that all Jazz Societies  seriously think about posting similar 
adds  for performing opportunities  for musicians if you really are  
interested in preserving OKOM.    Invite at least one to be a  special 
guest performer at your NEXT  function,  they need help  NOW.

We simply can't do enough right now, but we  can do something  don't miss 
the  opportunity.

We are doing a benefit concert and have determined a good direct charity,  
the Jazz Foundation of America, to send direct aid to musicians in New  Orleans:
(http://www.jazzfoundation.org/emergency_fund.php)  (http://www.jazzadvocate.org) 
Once you find the site and read about it, trying phoning them.  There  is an 
automated answering system in front that asks if "You are a musician in  need 
from Katrina".  That's about as direct as you can get!
