Now that the dust has settled, we wanted to take time to thank all of our wonderful performers, partners and you, the fans, for making our first annual Preservation Hall Ball a roaring success!
To our performers who joined the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on this historic of evenings: Allen Toussaint, Ani DiFranco, Maverick Sabre, Tao Rodríguez-Seeger, Beats Antique, Topsy Chapman and Betty Ann Williams, we extend our deepest gratitude.
Due to your generosity the Preservation Hall Foundationwill be able to continue to disperse instruments and provide music lessons to young aspiring jazz musicians, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will persist with their numerous outreach events while touring the world. The donations will truly go towards preserving, perpetuating and protecting the art of traditional New Orleans jazz and it is all thanks to YOU.
See you next year at the Ball and the next time you join us at the Hall!
