Malinowski has played with members of Dopapod and Papa Grows Funk, and toured nationally with the Cha Wa Band and Ana Popovic.“Steve would be playing music right now if he were still alive. So we’re going to do just that,” said Mikey of his dear friend. “That’s the best way to honor him. By donating proceeds to music education through WWOZ in New Orleans, a city that he loved and I love, we can ensure that people are able to continue playing music for a long time.”Proceeds from the show will go to benefit music education in Malinowski’s memory.
