Preservation Hall Jazz Band with Allen Toussaint

When: Tue., Oct. 14, 7:30 p.m. 2014

When Allan Jaffe and his wife Sandra moved from Pennsylvania to New Orleans in the early ’60s, they didn’t initially come for the music. But they ended up staying for the music after they took over a small, dingy art gallery in the French Quarter and turned it into Preservation Hall, a 100-seat concert venue that became the home of many a New Orleans-style jazz jam session and yielded the touring band, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The venue is still a hot spot in the city known for live music. No one knows the venue’s history better than Ben Jaffe, son of the late Allan Jaffe. He spent some serious time hanging out at Preservation Hall while growing up and currently serves as a music director of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. For this tour, dubbed “Oh Yeah!” on account of its whimsical nature, the troupe has teamed up with New Orleans icon Allen Toussaint for the first-ever joint tour. Should be a terrific show. 7:30 p.m., $48 ADV, $55 DOS. Music Box Supper Club. (Niesel)

Price: $48 ADV, $55 DOS
