New Orleans Could Always Use More Nationally-Acclaimed Heroes

OK, I know I promised to be done with the VooDoo posts but I forgot about this one and, seeing as how it's an ongoing story, it doesn't really count.


Anyways, if you know anything about brass band music in this city you should know that Derrick Tabb, the snare drummer for Rebirth, was featured on CNN's Heroes segment for his Roots of Music foundation. The kids that Tabb has worked with over the years were out in full force at VooDoo, performing every day of the event and even finding time to do some marching.


If you were wondering who all those people with blue signs were that said "Vote Derrick Tabb" and maybe dismissed it as some politician, well, shame on you. This is to make Tabb CNN's Hero of the Year and everyone should cast their vote immediately. You can vote as many times as you want until 6 a.m. on Thursday November 19. There will also be a tribute to all the Heroes on CNN on Thanksgiving night.


Rock the vote, New Orleans.
