Jan 18, 2010 - Case21 on 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.
