Preservation Hall Jazz Band
1034 N. 4th St., Milwaukee, WI, 53203
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band has done exactly what its name promises. Based out of the New Orleans venue from which the band takes its name, the group has helped keep New Orleans-style big band jazz alive since its inception in the 1960s. Spawned from the original house band at the venue, the group began touring in 1963 and has continued to do so to the present day with various lineups all under the same name. The group keeps the spirit of big, brassy and sincerely enjoyable jazz alive through constant touring and recording collaborations with a series of guest vocalists, along with a recent tour opening for My Morning Jacket.
