Welcome to my gofundme page I've set up for Ralph-a-Palooza. We are raising monies to make a collective donation to the Jazz Foundation of America in Ralph's name. In doing so, we are producing a rollicking event to be held at SF Eagle, 398 12th, San Francsico on the 1st of February. The event features several bands including The Cottontails, Gaucho,The Extra Action Marching Band and several others. Visit the event page "Ralph-a-Palooza" on Facebook for more details. I am personally not profiting from this gofundme page nor from the event itself. I am doing this work because I loved Ralph, I believe in his music and his spirit and I share many of those qualities myself. His untimely demise affected me greatly and circumstances collided that I was in the position to give my time and effort to creating an event where the musical community and friends of Ralph could get together, make some noise and hug it out.
