Preservation Hall Jazz Band Injects Louisiana Flavor to Coachella
The trendy, hip crowd at Coachella will get a taste of real jazz served up New Orleans-style when Preservation Hall Jazz Band hits the stage this Sunday, April 20.
The New Orleans-based band will be appearing among punk rock, hip hop & indie rock bands at California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

"I think it's not only amazing, but incredibly brave and a huge statement for an event like Coachella to have us appear," Jaffe told The Press-Enterprise.
