Preservation Hall Announces ’Round Midnight Preserves Live Stream Concert
Dave Grohl, Beck, Jim James, and more join the Jazz Band for a June 20 event raising funds for COVID relief.
Next Saturday, Preservation Hall Jazz Band will continue their efforts to raise funds for the Preservation Hall Foundation mid-COVID with a night of live music and conversations featuring a stacked line-up of special guests, including Dave Grohl, Elvis Costello, Irma Thomas, Dave Matthews, Beck, Jon Batiste, Jim James, PJ Morton, and Nathaniel Rateliff, with photographer Danny Clinch serving as host. The event will be a virtual stand-in for New Orleans’ annual Midnight Preserves concert series.
“Every year we look forward to Midnight Preserves as a way to connect with our fans and old friends,” shared Pres Hall’s Ben Jaffe in a statement released this morning through his label Sub Pop. “Just about everyone I’m friends with today I’ve met through music or a musical collaboration that came out of Midnight Preserves. It’s a blessing to have met so many incredible humans and to have shared our stage and their stage.”
Tune in next Saturday, June 20, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. PT for all the action. The event is free, though any donations will go towards the Foundation’s relief efforts, with Spotify promising to match donations dollar-for-dollar. More details here and below.
