Not too long ago, USA Today opined that the Preservation Hall Jazz Band offered "proof that the music pioneered in New Orleans a century ago was the clear progenitor of today's jam-band phenomenon."
And it seems they're not alone.
Yesterday, the lineup for the seventh annual Mountain Jam music festival was announced. Presented by Radio Woodstock and Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, The Allman Brothers Band), this four-day festival of music and camping will feature performances from such jam band favorites as Gov't Mule, Electric Hot Tuna, My Morning Jacket, The North Mississippi Allstars, and Bela Fleck & The Flecktones. And right alongside them, bringing some scorching trad jazz to the mix, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band!
Look out, New York!
