Tour Dates | Allen Toussaint & Preservation Hall Jazz Band

This afternoon Preservation Hall Jazz Band has announced they will soon hit the road with fellow New Orleans institution Allen Toussaint for an extensive tour this fall. Unlike many tour packages, where each act performs their own show, Toussaint will team with Preservation Hall Jazz Band for combined shows at each stop, with lots of interaction promised between the two legendary acts.

“After all these years of playing together in New Orleans and coming to the same festivals here and there around the world, it is amazing that we never hit the road as a package before” said Preservation Hall band leader Ben Jaffe in a statement. “It was almost as if we’ve always just assumed it had already happened, and then one day it was like ‘Oh yeah, WE need to do this thing’ and the Oh Yeah! Tour was born.”

“I’ve been playing with the guys in Preservation Hall around New Orleans since the 1960’s, so I’m really excited to finally get out on the road and perform together with them every night on a tour,” said Mr. Toussaint, “we’re going to have a lot of fun, and so will the audience.” The tour starts at the Wharton Center for the Performing Arts in East Lansing, MI on October 8 and ends on November 29 at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, CA.
