Tonight – Sept. 16 – New Orleans’ historic Preservation Hall will open its doors once again, bouncing back from the devastation of Hurricane Ida.
“Preservation Hall, thanks to the generous support of its global community, continues to survive whatever the world throws at it,” reads an official statement from the venue. “After the COVID pandemic forced the Hall’s doors to close for 16 months, it re-opened on June 10th, the 60th Anniversary of its original opening, adhering to city recommendations and rejoicing in the return of live music… Hurricane Ida necessitated shutting the doors once again. Thankfully, all Hall musicians are alright, though several had major damage to their homes, and all were once again out of work. The Preservation Hall Foundation immediately revived its Emergency Relief Fund and provided an emergency grant to each musician to help them address their immediate needs.”
Preservation Hall will host limited capacity shows from Thursday through Sunday nights at 5 p.m., 6:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and reservations are strongly recommended.
