Jazz @ The Center: Preservation Hall Jazz Band

Acadiana Center for the Arts, 101 W. Vermilion Road
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band has traveled worldwide spreading their mission to perpetuate traditional New Orleans Jazz. Whether performing at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, for British Royalty or the King of Thailand, they embody a joyful, timeless spirit. Many of the bands charter members performed with the pioneers who invented jazz in the early twentieth century, including Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong. From the birthplace of Jazz to the heart of Acadiana were excited to bring PHJB to AcA.
