Ep136: Ben Jaffe Of The Preservation Hall & Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Ben Jaffe of the Preservation Hall & Preservation Hall Jazz Band joins the show for the most perhaps the most significant origin story we’ve recorded to date. Ben talks about growing up in the French Quarter, and deep dives into into his parents’ New Orleans story, including the Hall, Jazz Fest and social advocacy. Then we get into the evolution of the Prez Hall Band following Ben’s graduation from college, Hurricane Katrina and the ‘Complicated Life’ music video. We close out talking about the New Orleans premiere of the film ‘Tuba to Cuba’ at the New Orleans Film Fest. Thanks for listening… and please share.
