Preservation Hall, French Quarter

Above: Original sign
Below: I was shocked at the appearance o this place!! It was not air conditioned, but we sat in front of a fan and it wasn't so bad!
We didn't know about the gospel music on the Sunday we were there. We would have gone had we known!

Preservation Hall was right next to Pat O'Brien's. It was one of our favorite places. We went back twice! Preservation Hall features older black musicians. The famous musicians were on summer tour (London, no less!) and younger men were playing instead. We saw a different band both nights. They were great! They took requests and one man sang "It's a Wonderful World" at my request! He sounded a lot like Louis Armstrong too!
