Preservation Hall Jazz Band (PHJB), known for their preservation of traditional New Orleans Jazz as well as bringing it to the new generation by performing with bands such as The Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket and Trombone Shorty, will return to the Playhouse with their signature high-spirited sound. Steeped in history, PHJB was formed in 1961 by Allan and Sandra Jaffe and took their name from Preservation Hall, the venerable music venue located in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter.

In 2012, PHJB celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a recording and sold-out Carnegie Hall concert that included My Morning Jacket, Tom Waits, Merle Haggard, Mos Def and more luminaries. PHJB is set to continue ushering in world-class jazz to a new generation.

Rabbits Foot will start off the night! Based out of Fairfield, Connecticut, they blend guitar-driven blues with classic soul and funk to create a sound that nods to the musical heroes of the past, while simultaneously having an original and modern touch.

Tickets: $53.50 ($1 of each ticket sold goes to Preservation Hall Foundation) VIP Tickets: additional $50 (100 % of the proceeds goes to the Preservation Hall Foundation)
