The sounds of New Orleans come to the Old Whaling Church on July 23 with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band!
Throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City’s inimitable spirit and joie de vivre. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history. Their newest album of all-new original music, So It Is, redefines what New Orleans music means in 2017 by tapping into a sonic continuum that stretches back to the city’s Afro-Cuban roots and forward to cutting-edge modern artists with whom the PHJB have shared festival stages, including Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello, the Grateful Dead, Arcade Fire, and the Black Keys.
