Preservation Hall’s annual Midnight Preserves series during Jazz Fest welcomes prominent artists from a variety of genres to join the Preservation Hall Jazz Band for intimate midnight concerts within the walls of our hallowed venue in the heart of the French Quarter.
From the beginnings of the large scale festival, dating back to gargantuan events such as the 1969 Woodstock Music & Arts Festival or the Watkins Glen Summer Jam of 1973, it was apparent that hosting tens of thousands and creating a safe environment with proper amenities and resources was a challenge that needed some trial and error to perfect. Over the years music and the way we listen to it has come a long way. And so have the festival concepts that we enjoy contemporary.
Though jazz connotes many meanings to many different people something most can agree upon is that jazz necessitates devotion to an instrument. How that layout translates is wide spanning. Jazz can also be narrowed down stylistically by place of origin. Chicago and New York jazz will have signature qualities and different style.

Greetings from Asbury Park...It's never been so important to say those words, because compared to the rest of the Jersey Shore, we are fine. The Stone Pony, Paramount Theatre and Asbury Park Convention Hall are open for business and the rest of our boardwalk and surrounding beaches are progressing into the New Year.But our neighbors, our families and our friends however are not as fortunate. For the past month we've been with them, shoveling, ripping out drywall and now know why they call a crawl space a crawl space.
