Player Bios

Every night, Preservation Hall presents intimate, acoustic concerts featuring bands made up from a current collective of 100+ local master Traditional New Orleans Jazz musicians. These masters have learned the traditional style from the greats that played before them at Preservation Hall.

There is no audition process to play at Preservation Hall. While many of our musicians are related to the original players by blood, they are all connected through the sheer power of tradition.

But without further ado, please meet a few of the regular performers and bands of Preservation Hall.
