Krazy Kat Music Joins the Allstars as an Equipment Partner

We're very excited. Eugene Ng, owner of San Antonio's Krazy Kat Music has agreed to become an equipment partner with the Alamo Colleges Jazz Allstars project.
This means that he'll help us out with sound reinforcement and backline when he can, and will offer a special discount to Alamo Allstars students who want to buy good reliable used instruments and sound equipment from his store. They also do repairs. Gene is a community minded man, who has helped many starving artists and students in the twenty years that he's been in business. We are very lucky to have him on board. Thank you, Gene!
