PHJB and Blind Boys of Alabama: On the Road Again!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As you may already know, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band has had the distinct honor of touring with five-time Grammy Winners the Blind Boys Of Alabama over the course of the last year. The Down By The Riverside Tour has been a great success, and a whole bunch of fun for everybody involved. And they just keep going! If you'd like to know when they'll be visiting a town near you, click HERE to be directed to the PHJB touring schedule, complete with Down By The Riverside dates in March and April. (More dates to come!)

If you're not in a position to be able to get out to any of these great shows, fear not! Please enjoy the following video featuring the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Blind Boys of Alabama in performance at the National Geographic headquarters!



And for those fans who are looking for a little more, you can click HERE to purchase a DVD featuring the Blind Boys of Alabama in performance with specials guests Dr. John, Susan Tedeschi, Henry Butler, Marva Wright, and of course, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The DVD is called Live In New Orleans. Here's a brief description:

In the spring of 2008 the Blind Boys of Alabama headed to New Orleans to play a sold-out show at the iconic Crescent City club Tipitina's. The city, of course, was the focus of the band's latest CD, Down in New Orleans, and on that very special night the Blind Boys invited some of their favorite musicians to play with them...
