Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Picnic Dinner | July 26 | 6:30 – 9 pm

New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface,  transformed by the Crescent City’s inimitable spirit and joie de vivre.

Nowhere is that idea more vividly embodied than in the  Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New  Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years. PHJB marches that  tradition forward and redefines what New Orleans music means by tapping into Afro-Cuban roots and finds the classic PHJB  sound invigorated by a number of fresh influences.

“In New Orleans, we play music for dances and parades, funerals and church. It’s important to us to make music people  connect to, that people dance to, that people really feel,  emotionally and physically.  That’s the tradition we grew up with, that’s what we know. “Says bandleader/composer/bassist Ben Jaffe”

Bring your comfy shoes, it’s going to be a dance party from the downbeat!

“N’Ahlins Nibbles” served picnic casual style, opens when the grounds open for the concert and closes at 8pm. Nibbles are included in your ticket price.  One token per ticket buyer provided to redeem your dish.  Choice of:

VEGETARIAN GUMBO – an aromatic hearty stew with native Swiss Chard, Black Eyed Peas, and Smoked Paprika served over Rice w/ Cornbread 


CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE JAMBALAYA – a New Orleans classic with Chicken and Spicy Andouille Sausage served over Rice w/ Cornbread.

Grab your grub and take a seat!

Bring lawn chairs (for under the tent) or larger picnic spreads for on the grounds (pop-ups permitted).  Formal seating will not be provided as we are saving space to dance!
