PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND
WITH ALLEN TOUSSAINT
Oct 19 • 7:30PM
Tickets: $59.50, $49.50, $39.50, $29.50, $19.50
 
Preservation Hall Jazz Band: Preservation Hall was founded in 1961 to promote traditional New Orleans jazz in all its authenticity. Legendary players like George Lewis, Sweet Emma Barrett and Kid Thomas Valentine, all rooted in the formative years jazz, were its original stars. That generation is long gone now, yet the hall is still in business and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band continues to tour the world. In recent years, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (PHJB) has performed and recorded with a wide array of musicians, ranging from groups like My Morning Jacket, Tom Waits, Merle Haggard, Pete Seeger, and the Del McCoury Band. In the heyday of the Jazz Age, New Orleans musicians learned new tunes all the time by listening to what their peers were doing in the dance halls and on their recordings. One of the aims of their most recent album is to stimulate that kind of cross-pollination among today’s New Orleans jazzmen. Though some traditional jazz purists may be surprised, the broader public will hopefully find this music engaging, enthralling—and irresistibly danceable.
 
Allen Toussaint: Allen Toussaint is an American musician, songwriter and record producer, and one of the most influential figures in New Orleans R&B. Toussaint has crossed many paths in his illustrious 40 years plus career in music. He has produced, written for, arranged, had his songs covered by, and performed with music giants The Judds, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Patti LaBelle, Mac "Dr. John" Rebennack, Joe Cocker, Glen Campbell, Little Feat, The Rolling Stones, Etta James and countless others. After establishing himself as one of the greatest songwriters, accredited to him by BMI Music, Toussaint was honored with a Grammy nomination for the 1977's song of the year, “Southern Night,” performed by Glen Campbell. His career has spanned over 40 years, all adding up to include being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2012, Toussaint was inducted into the Song Writers Hall Of Fame and The Blues Hall Of Fame.
