Don't call it socialism! Don't blame Obama! And don't start regurgitating all that mind-numbing madness you hear on Fox News. Just relax for a mintute. Call it taking care of your brothers and sisters in the music business...or what is left of it. This is a heads up to all Acadiana musicians and individual working on music industry.

Once again, the services are free of charge and doled out on a first come, first served basis, so if like many musicians, you have no health insurance, now might be a good time to get yourself checked out.
