Preservation Hall Jazz Band Unveils Summer Routing

Preservation Hall Jazz Band has been touring since 1963 and doesn’t seem to be slowly down any time soon. The group’s summer schedule includes a handful of gigs with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

The band, which takes its name from the French Quarter venue Preservation Hall, continues to put in time on the road in its “mission to protect, preserve and perpetuate New Orleans Jazz across America.”

Your next chance to catch the band on stage is April 30 at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Dates with Edward Sharpe include performances in Council Bluffs, Iowa; Vienna, Va.; Redmond, Wash.; and Garden City, Idaho.  

The tour wraps up with a special show at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre featuring Yonder Mountain String Band and Drive-By Truckers.
