WEILL CENTER ANNOUNCES PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND
Preservation Hall Jazz Band brings Creole Christmas National Tour to Sheboygan
SHEBOYGAN, WI (September 20, 2023) - The Weill Center for the Performing Arts, a 1,150-seat live event venue located in the heart of downtown Sheboygan’s growing arts and entertainment district announced Preservation Hall Jazz Band will perform their holiday concert, “Creole Christmas” on Sunday, December 10 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, September 22 at noon.
“We’re thrilled to welcome these legendary jazz musicians to our community for a special holiday show,” said Jerry Jones, Weill Center board president. “We are excited to bring the spirit and sounds of New Orleans to downtown Sheboygan.”
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band was founded in New Orleans by tuba player Allan Jaffe in the early 1960s and derived their name from Preservation Hall in the French Quarter. Despite challenges the band faced including Jaffe’s death in 1987 and the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the Hall in 2005, the band continued to tour the country as well as internationally. They have been applauded for sharing the unbreakable spirit of New Orleans. Rolling Stones Magazine says they are "The Past and Promise of American Music.”
Join as the band performs New Orleans classics as well as some of our best-loved holiday selections with a twist. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 22 at noon. Tickets can be purchased at www.weillcenter.com, by phone at (920) 208-3243, or in person at 826 N 8th Street in Sheboygan. The Weill Center ticket office is open from Tuesday to Friday, 12 - 4 p.m., and one hour prior to events.
