©Preservation Hall ABOUT THE BAND: The Preservation Hall Jazz Band derives its name from Preservation Hall, the venerable music venue located in the heart of New Orleans' French Quarter, founded in 1961 by Allan and Sandra Jaffe. The band has traveled worldwide spreading their mission to nurture and perpetuate the art form of New Orleans Jazz. Whether performing at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, for British Royalty... or the King of Thailand, this music embodies a joyful, timeless spirit. Under the auspices of current director, Ben Jaffe, the son of founders Allan and Sandra, Preservation Hall continues with a deep reverence and consciousness of its greatest attributes in the modern day as a venue, band, and record label. The building that houses Preservation Hall has housed many businesses over the years including a tavern during the war of 1812, a photo studio and an art gallery. It was during the years of the art gallery that then owner, Larry Borenstein, began holding informal jam sessions for his close friends. Out of these sessions grew the concept of Preservation Hall. The intimate venue, whose weathered exterior has been untouched over its history, is a living embodiment of its original vision. To this day, Preservation Hall has no drinks, air conditioning, or other typical accoutrements strictly welcoming people of all ages interested in having one of the last pure music experiences left on the earth. The PHJB began touring in 1963 and for many years there were several bands successfully touring under the name Preservation Hall. Many of the band's charter members performed with the pioneers who invented jazz in the early twentieth century including Buddy Bolden, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Bunk Johnson. Band leaders over the band's history include the brothers Willie and Percy Humphrey, husband and wife Billie and De De Pierce, famed pianist Sweet Emma Barrett, and in the modern day Wendall and John Brunious. These founding artists and dozens of others passed on the lessons of their music to a younger generation who now follow in their footsteps like the current lineup. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band is: Mark Braud - trumpet, vocals Charlie Gabriel - clarinet, vocals Clint Maedgen - sax, vocals Freddie Lonzo - trombone "The Professor" Rickie Monie - piano Ben Jaffe - tuba, string bass Lil' Joe Lastie - drums Charter members of The Preservation Hall Jazz Band include: George Lewis, Sweet Emma Barrett, Cie Frazier, Billie & DeDe Pierce, Big Jim Robinson, Slow Drag Pavageau, Sammy Penn, Louis Nelson, Kid Thomas Valentine, Narvin Kimball, Emanuel Sayles, Emmanuel Paul, John Brunious, Walter Payton, Albert Burbank, and dozens more New Orleans Legends.

Joe Lastie featuring Big Chief David Montana and Darrell Davis. If you haven’t heard Joe Lastie's drumming, then you haven't yet felt the beat of New Orleans. The drummer of The Preservation Hall Jazz Band unveils his new single " New Orleans in Me" on August 28th, capturing his hometown's vibrant soulful rhythm. No drummer personifies the essential soul of New Orleans like Joe Lastie. Joe has been at the forefront of the New Orleans music revival, touring extensively for over two decades with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and playing with local legends The Treme Brass Band since his teens. Joe has been a fixture for over forty years sitting in on the skins at clubs on Frenchman Street and Bourbon Street. He comes from a line of legendary musical pioneers, from his grandfather Frank Lastie, who introduced drums into Gospel music's instrumentation in the 1930s, to his uncles Jesse Hill, Melvin, Walter and David Lastie and cousins Herlin Riley and Troy "Trombone" Shorty. HBO's "Sonic Highways" (2014) documentary series features a poignant scene with members of the Foo Fighters jamming with Joe and his family at his gospelsinging Aunt Bettie Ann Williams ' home the 9th Ward. Joe's previous full length album released by Preservation Hall Recordings "The Lastie Family Gospel" came out in 2008. With his extensive international touring and regular local shows it became hard for Joe to write and record, especially after the breakout success of "That's It" (Sony Legacy 2013), Preservation Hall Jazz Band's first album of entirely original material. As we approach the 10th anniversary of Katrina, a melody and hook has remained stuck in his head. "New Orleans In Me" was inspired by many of Joe's encounters with displaced New Orleanians who have yet to return after Hurricane Katrina, but the Crescent City is forever in their hearts. "It struck me that no matter where I go, you can't take New Orleans out of us. I hear our local style of speech and slang in so many parts of the world, and it just reminds me of where I come from, and where I always will call home," comments Lastie. The track is a hybrid brass band rocker for second lining down Saint Charles Avenue mixed with a protective spiritual chant in the Mardi Gras Indian tradition. The five minute romp features vocals by David Montana , Big Chief of the Washitaw Mardi Gras Nation, and instrumental backing by all of Joe's fellow members of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (Mark Braud Trumpet, Rickie Monie Piano, Charlie Gabriel Clarinet, Clint Maedgen Saxophone, Ben Jaffe Sousaphone), along with Roger Lewis (Sousaphone) and Darrell Harris (Percussion). Joe and David Montana built the grooving rhythm and horns into a meaningful remembrance of the past and a powerful cheer for the future of his great city that initiated the musical renaissance of our country. Here's a sample of the lyrics: "You can take me, outta New Orleans. NEW ORLEANS IN ME But you can't take New Orleans outta me! There was a storm a'brewing, Her name was Katrina. A girl so strong, a storm so mean, She moved all around and blew my way. Don't want another storm like that to ever come my way. Tell me what I say, tell me what I say, 10 years is gone and it's a better day. The water came in a flashing rush, It pushed me back like a big strong truck. People moving from all about, Just clean your house and shut your mouth. Tell me what I say, tell me what I say, 10 years is gone and it's a better day. You can take me, outta New Orleans. NEW ORLEANS IN ME But you can't take New Orleans outta me!" Joe concludes, "Katrina hit on my birthday, which I was celebrating with my daughter up in Atlanta. We had big storms in the past but it took months before we were able to make it into the city. When I finally got back in I felt so empty, the city was so quiet. Not even birds chirping. I never had seen anything like it. Now there are brass bands marching every night and we are teaching so many kids all over the city. Our traditions are stronger than ever!"

Download the track on Itunes now! All proceeds to gulfaid.org Itunes link: http://t.ymlp52.com/ewjaaammjaaamjsbadajjqh/click.php With oil continuing to leak into the waters off the Gulf Coast, The Gulf Relief Foundation's fundraising efforts continue with the June 15 iTunes release of "Ain't My Fault." This musical collaboration features the GULF AID ALL-STARS: New Orleans' own Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Trombone Shorty collaborating with Lenny Kravitz, Tim Robbins and Mos Def. The song--an updated version of a 1960s New Orleans Mardi Gras standard originally written by Joseph Smokey Johnson (who also recorded the track) and Wardell Joseph Quezergue--features updated lyrics by Mos Def and Preservation Hall's Ben Jaffe to reflect the current tragic situation's affects on the region. "Ain't my Fault" is available NOW via iTunes as a single(99 cents)or video($1.99) with all proceeds being distributed by the Gulf Relief Foundation (GulfAid.org) to support organizations focused on wetlands/coastal environmental issues and the regional seafood industry. The 2010 version of "Ain't My Fault" was recorded in an impromptu late-night session at Preservation Hall in New Orleans just days before the musicians performed at a May 16 GULF AID benefit concert there. Produced by Ben Jaffe and Bill Lynn, the historic benefit track makes use not only of the building's rich history, but some of the historic equipment still housed therein. Lenny Kravitz plays his guitar through Sweet Emma's amplifier while Mos Def sings through her megaphone, all the while trading licks with 78-year-old clarinetist Charlie Gabriel. "Hip Hop is the New Orleans Jazz of this generation," Ben Jaffe says. "If this was 1910, Mos Def and Lenny would be doing the same thing with Jelly Roll Morton or Louis Armstrong." Stephen Rehage--founder and producer of the Voodoo Experience and the producer of the GULF AID benefit concert--organized and executive produced "Ain't My Fault" as a way to continue the fundraising efforts. "We had all these musicians together and wanted people outside of New Orleans to experience this great collaboration," Rehage says. "The song and video are another way for us to help raise funds and awareness of this ongoing tragedy." With the Associated Press reporting "in the seven weeks since the oil rig explosion that set off the catastrophe..."(June 9, 2010) and the most recent estimates are between "42 million gallons to more than 100 million gallons of oil have already fouled the Gulf's delicate ecosystem," (June 11, 2010), fund raising efforts remain crucial as more than 120 miles of shoreline stretching from Louisiana to Florida have been affected.
