The Preservation Hall Jazz Band has a responsibility to not only carry on the traditions, musical and cultural, that were handed down to us by the generations that came before, we also have a responsibility to contribute our voice and experiences to the New Orleans musical tradition.

Music is essential to our identity, it's essential to who we are; music feeds our souls.

Our role is to nourish and help protect the community that gave birth to one of our great American art forms, something that is truly American — and that is jazz.

We need music more than ever.

Our music is meant to unify.
