Wednesday, June 8, 2011 – Preservation Hall, New Orleans: It was fifty years ago this June that Larry Borenstein’s Associated Artists Gallery at 726 St. Peter Street in the French Quarter made the official transition from host of informal jazz jam sessions to a fledgling nightly music venue. Please join us in celebrating Preservation Hall’s 50th birthday this Wednesday, June 8 in the room where it all started. Featuring live performances by the Treme Brass Band and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, this evening is sure to be a special night of remembrances, as well as a celebration looking forward to our next half century. Join us for music in the live room, or mix and mingle with a cross-section of fascinating guests and notable Preservation Hall figures spanning the last half-century in our courtyard. It’s a family reunion, and you’re invited.
