Preservation Hall Jazz Band

Originally house band at the famed Hall in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, faithfully performing the indigenous classic jazz canon since 1963, 2nd generation steward Ben Jaffe continues minding that hallowed store while also writing and performing with the group all around the world. Their outreach and alumni programs are a beacon for arts combines of all stripes, while the music has been hailed by everyone from Louis Armstrong himself to The Arcade Fire.
