Preservation Hall Tours

Preservation Hall

Located in the heart of New Orleans' famed French Quarter, Preservation Hall is home to the famous Preservation Hall Jazz Band and hosts a variety of the Big Easy's best jazz performers. Crowds pack this old time venue to relive the glory days of jazz and watch seasoned 70 and 80-year-old jazz veterans alongside upcoming musicians play some of that signature New Orleans sound.

Despite the dust and sweaty audience packed into this legendary hall, Preservation Hall is still the premiere place in New Orleans for live music. While you'll be surprised by the multitude of talented musicians on the street, there's nothing like hearing the Preservation Hall Band perform a New Orleans anthem, "When the Saints Go Marching In" in an setting small enough to hear that pure jazz sound perfectly without any sound equipment.

At Preservation Hall, the lines for shows are consistantly long, but once inside you can stay for multiple sets and work you're way up to one of the few benches available. All ages are welcome to experience New Orleans Jazz at Preservation Hall, and it promises to be the highlight of any trip to the Big Easy for jazz enthusiasts and rookies alike.

Address: 726 Saint Peter Street, New Orleans 70116, USA
