  • Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Allen Toussaint

    Preservation Hall was founded in 1961 to promote traditional New Orleans jazz in all its authenticity. Legendary players like George Lewis, Sweet Emma Barrett and Kid Thomas Valentine, all rooted in the formative years jazz, were its original stars and performed nightly in a tiny space located in the historic French Quarter. While that generation is long gone, the hall is still in business, the music is still performed and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band continues to tour the world. Fronting the band at this time is Allen Toussaint, one of the most influential figures in New Orleans R&B. An American musician, songwriter and record producer, Toussaint has crossed paths with many of music’s greats in his illustrious 40-year-plus career including Paul Simon.

  • Ray LaMontagne

    With a voice that recalls a huskier, sandpapery version of Van Morrison and Tim Buckley, Ray LaMontagne joins such artists as Iron & Wine in creating folk songs that are alternately lush and intimately earthy. In the summer of 1999, LaMontagne put together a 10-song demo tape that soon found its way into the hands of Jamie Ceretta at Chrysalis Music Publishing. The publishing house signed the young songwriter and teamed him with producer Ethan Johns, resulting in LaMontagne's debut album, Trouble. The record was picked up by RCA and released in the fall of 2004, impressing critics with such songs as the title tune, "Trouble," and the cinematic style of pieces like "Narrow Escape." His albums since have meet with plenty of success and he’s placed songs on several TV shows. Early in 2014, RCA announced that LaMontagne's fifth album would be released. Produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Supernova was issued at the end of April. LaMontagne will be performing at the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach on November 5 at 7:30 p.m. Enter now to win a pair of tickets!
