Dinerral Shavers Murder Case Dismissed

Jun 30, 2007 by

This is a statement from the Hot 8 Brass Band, for whom Dinerral played snare.

We were disappointed and shocked to hear this morning that the murder case against David Bonds, accused of shooting our snare drummer Dinerral Shavers, has been dismissed. We are currently on the road, trying to spread the music and culture of New Orleans and to broadcast a positive message about the city across the nation. Dinerral’s death, and now the dismissal of his case, only prove to us how important this work is. We will continue to fight for New Orleans, at home and away. We will continue to honor the generous spirit of Dinerral, who gave so much to our music and to our city.

Disappointed? That hardly covers it. This is a shame and a disgrace.
