Preservation Hall, New Orleans Reviews
This was a really enjoyable evening listening to a good jazz band. There were no frills, just great music! In the session we attended, there was a trombone, trumpet, clarinet, bass, piano and drums. The trumpet player was their leader and he even sang some and we had audience participation. They were all really good! I happened to be there at a time when the audience were all great participants too, so that was a great experience!! They won't let you take pics during the session, but they let you take some before. So there are none with the actual musicians. You can buy reserved seat tickets online (you just get seated first at the session- so you have an up front bench is really all that means) for like at least double what it costs at the door. Or you can get in line before the show (be there to get in line at least half hour prior) and pay at the door. You have to have cash - they don't take cards! It's $20 at the door. They also sell some small stuff in there - t shirts, little trinkets saying Preservation Hall.
Booked front bench seats here for Friday night show. Worth the money to avoid the queue in my opinion but the experience will be much the same regardless of where you sit as the venue is tiny. Sets are short (45 mins) but very enjoyable. The all stars have probably forgotten more about jazz than most will ever know. The intimate setting (you're within touching distance of the band basically), the quality music and the banter from the band made this a highlight of the trip. Even the short set didn't detract at all. Make sure you make a bathroom stop and grab a to-go drink before heading in, as neither of those things are available inside. Bring some cash, make a request and enjoy your evening.
This is purely for the music. It is a historic, no frills venue with bench seating and fans. Incredibly atmospheric and some of the best quality jazz you'll hear. Be mindful the cover is fairly pricey at 20 (10 for students) for a show that goes by quickly at a short 1 hour. You can bring in outside drinks. May be able to get into the late show for free if ask early as they do have 2 acts a night.
Wanted to hear live Jazz for my 16 yr old and 11-year-old. Where do you take them in NOLA? The answer is Preservation Hall, they are playing jazz and all ages are welcome. This a small venue they do have some bench seating and some chairs around the space. They also have cushions on the floor for seating. The Jazz is very entertaining, and it is a nice show for about 50 min. There are a lot of places you can go here Jazz in the Big Easy but come here if you can.
Live Jazz music with some of the experienced musicians who's been playing Jazz since mid 1900's. An authentic vintage hall (pretty old and small) and lovely music. Five rows of benches each with a seating capacity of about 8 people and a small raised platform for the remaining to stand. Have to get half an hour early and wait in the line to get the tickets, and still didn't manage to get seated. The performance was very entertaining and it's hard not to dance to the beat.🕺
