SFJAZZ Gala: Honoring Preservation Hall

This week SFJazz will honor the music of New Orleans and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the SFJazz Gala taking place on Thursday, February 1. “We’ve emerged as a voice of New Orleans – the new New Orleans, not just as an example of a bygone era,” says PHJB Leader Ben Jaffe. Performances at the Gala will include Christian Scott, Ellis Marsalis, Terence Blanchard, Big Freedia, Saul Williams, SFJazz Collective, and many more. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band will remain in San Francisco following the Gala, performing from February 2-4 at Miner Auditorium.
