One thing you will instantly be aware of when you visit New Orleans, is that it is a city which thrives on music--JAZZ and ZYDECO among the most popular!! Music is in the air in every part of the French Quarter it seems!

If you're like me, you've heard about Preservation Hall but not really sure what it's all about. Attending a Preservation Hall performance is the quintessential music experience in New Orleans. We waited 2 hours + to be one of the first 15 people or so admitted to get a place on one of the few benches in this "tiny" room. The rest of the crowd had to stand or find a place on the floor to hear and see this performance. The line to get in stretched down the block on the evening we attended----that's how popular Preservation Hall is!!

Tickets: Online reserved seats run $35 - $50 per adult general admission seats are $15 - $20 (2016 Prices).
