Preservation Hall is located in the heart of the French Quarter on St. Peter Street. It has been a musical venue where on any given night, audiences could enjoy a wide variety of musical talent. Preservation Hall dates back to the 1950s with a gallery owner, Larry Borenstein, who invited musicians to perform rehearsal sessions in his art gallery. These sessions featured living legends of New Orleans Jazz – George Lewis, Punch Miller, Sweet Emma Barrett, Billie and De De Pierce, The Humphrey Brothers, and dozens more. Over time, the jam sessions became more popular and expanded to a larger building. Allan Jaffe took over the operations from Borenstein and the Preservation Hall was born.
