Learning that San Antonio's own Texas tenor titan, Vernon "Spot" Barnett, has been out of action since his instruments were stolen several years ago, The Local 23 Music Performance Fund, with the generous help of Alamo Music Center and its GM, Zach Marr, has arranged for a new Yamaha tenor sax (YTSAD300) at cost, along with Spot's preferred Berg Larsen mouthpiece, an ergonomic Vandoren neck strap, and 4 boxes of Rico Jazz Select reeds.
Known among fans and peers as gracious and unfailingly soulful, Mr. Barnett has nurtured musicians throughout and beyond his community. It's time we made sure this font of funk, who never sought help with his predicament, does not remain silenced. This is a very attainable goal--let's do ourselves proud and pitch in!
