New Orleans’ legendary Preservation Hall announced a livestream benefit concert dubbed ‘Round Midnight Preserves set for Saturday, June 20 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT with donations aiding the Preservation Hall Foundation’s Legacy Relief Fund. The event will feature unseen archival Preservation Hall Jazz Band collaborations as well as new performances from Dave Grohl, Dave Matthews and more.
Preservation Hall’s Ben Jaffe will host the event directed by renowned photographer Danny Clinch and also featuring Elvis Costello, Irma Thomas, Beck, Jon Batiste, Jim James, PJ Morton, Nathaniel Rateliff and more. Jaffe modeled ‘Round Midnight Preserves after the late-night Midnight Preserves events he created at Preservation Hall around the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
“Every year we look forward to Midnight Preserves as a way to connect with our fans and old friends,” Jaffe said in a statement. “Just about everyone I’m friends with today I’ve met through music or a musical collaboration that came out of Midnight Preserves. It’s a blessing to have met so many incredible humans and to have shared our stage and their stage.”
