The Preservation Hall Foundation is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Preservation Hall Ball at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans on October 3rd in addition to an expansion event at the historic Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco on November 6th. Collaborators include Meshell Ndegeocello, Corey Glover of Living Colour, Deacon John Moore, Pinettes Brass Band and Beats Antique with more special guests to be announced.
The Preservation Hall Ball is a celebration of our musical past, present and future. The musicians who perform at the Hall, most of who I grew up with and learned under, are the bedrock that we all stand on. The Ball is a celebration of them and their families' legacy. It's a way for us to acknowledge and celebrate these important time honored traditions and the musicians and families who have nurtured New Orleans music for over a century. -Ben Jaffe
All proceeds from the Preservation Hall Ball will directly benefit The Preservation Hall Foundation.
