Bye Bye BB

Well, this is a bit of a sad post. It was brought to my attention by a Daily Meaux reader that Brian "BB" Bruce has passed away. Mr. Bruce was that rare combination of community leader and musical artist. A graduate of Baton Rouge High and LSU, he founded and directed a case management company dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities, part of his
lifelong commitment to helping those in need. He was also co-founder and harmonica player for Henry Gray and the Cats.
This obit on details his music career, which included an award from Honer Harmonicas, and this article by Smiley Anders talks about Bruce and his wife Jackie, and their Mardi Gras Krewe, the "Krewe of Pigs". The video below features Bruce with Henry Gray and the Cats doing what he loved, blowing his harmonica.
Thanks for the heads-up Belle.
