I've had the privilege to hear a lot of great music, performed by some of the recognized masters in their fields. But an amazing thing happens when the Preservation Hall Jazz Band takes stage and breaks into their first piece of high energy New Orleans style jazz. You feel like you've never heard music before.
The band travels the world sharing what they call 'the planet's happiest music." You have to agree with them. Everyone in the Ford Theater's intimate 1200 seat outdoor stage where we heard them on July 5th was up on their feet by the end of the night, dancing and shouting for more.
