Preservation Hall Jazz Band
|No events found.|
“The past and promise of American music” (Rolling Stone), Preservation Hall Jazz Band is a true New Orleans institution that defines the tradition of Crescent City music. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band is embarking on a nationwide tour to celebrate the 60th anniversary of their namesake, the Preservation Hall in New Orleans. The band’s mission remains focused on initiating audiences into the ineffable, almost religious experience of channeling their ancestors through the music and culture they’ve inherited from them. Founded in 1961 by tuba player Allan Jaffe, the PHJB was formed to preserve the city’s priceless musical heritage and give their veteran musicians a place to play, and it 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 wealth of New Orleans talent, including versatile singer and instrumentalist Clint Maedgen, pianist Kyle Roussel, and trombonist Ronell Johnson, who joined the band in 2012.
