The nightly jazz concerts at New Orleans’ Preservation Hall are the stuff of legend. These musical ambassadors of the bona fide Big Easy have toured since 1963, continuously bringing both new musicians and fans into their fold; they have performed and recorded with Carlos Santana, the Grateful Dead, Harry Connick, Jr., Dr. John, and Pete Seeger, and have appeared at the Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, the White House, and Coachella in recent years. A recipient of the 2006 National Medal of Arts, Preservation Hall Jazz Band is dedicated to preserving and perfecting a genuine American art form, and knows how to have a large time doing it!
