As promised, here is the first of many Louisville Fun Things posts and it’s a good one.
I LOVE jazz. LOVE IT.
I took a class in college (yes, super cliche) and I fell in love. I love the history of it, the culture around it and of course, the music. So seeing the Preservation Hall Brass Band has been on my bucket list for a while. I was actually planning on checking it off the list at this year’s Bourbon & Beyond (Groupon still available FYI) but now, thanks to the Olmsted Parks Conservancy I can see them all by themselves at one of my favorite local venues.
The world-renowned Preservation Hall Brass Band will perform at Iroquois Park Amphitheatre on September 14 for this year’s Fete in the Forest. If you’re not familiar with the band, they are a traditional New Orleans jazz band and they are the resident jazz band of New Orleans’ most treasured and historic jazz venues. You can get a glimpse of their style here.
And for fellow New Orleans lovers, they’ll be serving up classic fare like Po’ Boys and getting the party going with Hurricanes courtesy of Southern Hospitality Bar & Grill. Sign me up.
