Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Lead Sun Valley Residents in Second Line
Monday, July 25, 2022


Treat yourself to a sampling of traditional New Orleans jazz Tuesday afternoon when the Preservation Hall Jazz Band dances its way from Ketchum Town Square to The Argyos Center for the Performing Arts.

The seven-member group will perform The Second Line—a hallowed part of American culture—at 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 26, as it strikes up the music at Ketchum Town Square and proceeds south from there along East Avenue to River Street where it will make the final cut towards the theater.

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band was formed in the 1960s by a tuba player Allan Jaffe. It took its name from Preservation Hall in the French Quarter.

The hall got its start when an art gallery owner opened his space for jazz musicians to perform rehearsals. It was a rare space in the South where racially integrated bands and audiences shared music together during the Jim Crow era.

As nightly jazz concerts caught the attention of The New York Times and Brinkley News Hour, Jaffe formed the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to take the traditional music on the road and, eventually, overseas to places like Japan and the palace of the King of Thailand.

Tuesday night’s concert at The Argyros is sold out.
