About NOMC

Since 1998, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic (NOMC) has been dedicated to keeping New Orleans' performers alive in body, mind, and spirit by providing comprehensive health care and mental health/social services. As the "medical home" for more than 2,500 local musicians and tradition bearers, the NOMC's Culture of Caring Model provides cost-efficient access to high quality healthcare and wellness programs for our patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

The New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation (NOMAF) evolved from NOMC following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to expand its mission and promise to keep New Orleans music alive by sustaining New Orleans' traditional music cultures through our Gig Fund and our Emergency Fund.

    NOMAF Brass Tacks Program


    Based on the vital need for financial stability among members of New Orleans’ world-renowned brass bands, the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation has created the Brass Tacks program.

    Brass Tacks is a pilot program aimed at aiding those in need of “financial fitness” by providing individual consultation, mentorship and social services to ensure stability of the brass band culture.

    This Saturday at 7am please come to Congo Square for Ashé Cac's 15th Annual Maafa Commemoration. Come together for healing through art and culture.

    MAAFA is a Kiswahili word that means "great tragedy" or "horrific tragedy," referring to the period called the Middle Passage or Transatlantic Slave Trade. During that time, millions of captives from Africa were brought to the Americas where they were used as a labor force, persecuted, beaten, and many, separated from their families forever.

    The MAAFA Commemoration offers an opportunity for the whole community to pause and reflect on this great transgression against humanity and to personally, as a community, agree to distance ourselves institutionally in word and deed from that transgression, its legacy and the evolved practice of racism in our civic, social, spiritual and personal lives.

    15th Annual Maafa Commemoration
