Preservation Hall Jazz Band w/ Allen Toussaint

As we approach a decade since Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, Crescent City culture is still struggling to regain a solid footing. Fortunately, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band is one rock upon which New Orleans can build anew. Even as the floodwaters retreated, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band persevered in its mission, touring around the nation, sharing the raucous, soulful sound of traditional New Orleans jazz. Founded in the early 1960s by tuba player Allan Jaffe, the PHJB instantly attracted players linked to the glory days of the 1920s. Now run by Jaffe’s son, tuba player Ben Jaffe, the group features a multi-generational wealth of New Orleans talent, and their latest release, That’s It, is the band’s first album of all-original material in their five-decade career. For this incredible evening, the PHJB is joined by one of the most iconic and influential figures in New Orleans music, legendary pianist and songwriter Allen Toussaint. As a performer, songwriter, producer and arranger, Toussaint has played an integral part in many of the greatest hits to emerge from New Orleans since the 1950s, and his indelible contributions to popular music earned him a much-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. This exclusive event is perhaps the only chance to see these two icons of New Orleans music together outside of the Big Easy.
