The Preservation Hall Jazz Band Remove performer from this event
Formed in New Orleans in 1961, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band is one of the last links remaining to the iconic sound of traditional New Orleans jazz. The scene/school that birthed the talents of Louis Armstrong and King Oliver is still alive and well in New Orleans because of the elderly veterans (plus some of their younger acolytes) of the PHJB....

Jan 18, 2010 - Case21 on The Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Nashville Show 1-16-10

We had a great time! The Nashville symphony was tremendous. It was the first time we had heard them. The conductor was fantastic. Ben Jaffe and the rest of the Preservation Hall Band are unbelievable. They had the entire hall dancing and clapping. The 2nd line was cool and the audience participation on stage was great. We were still dancing the next morning. We highly recommend this band and wish we could see them again soon.

This guy looks like a pimp!

You have to respect that in this day and age. Especially when they put Dr. in their name. Event his background makes his sound awesome. He apparently lost his ring finger on his left hand from a gunshot wound. Thats pretty hard core if ask me. I would see him if only because he sounds like he's got great stories, that I hope he tells in between songs.
