Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and Preservation Hall Jazz Band

The music of New Orleans—both old school and of the moment—comes to Iowa City in this free outdoor event.

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band opened the original Hancher Auditorium in 1972, and it’s only right that the band heralds the opening of the new Hancher facility. Led by Ben Jaffe, son of the band’s cofounders, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will share the traditional sounds of the Crescent City.

The party will roll on when Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue takes the stage. The band serves up the funk, spicing it with hip-hop, rock, and jazz inflections. This is some of the hottest music around, and it will have you up and dancing.
