The Dixie Diehards – An Evening at Preservation Hall In New Orleans

On Saturday April 28th, at 7:30pm the Marion Art Center will present a Spring Cabaret night entitled ” An Evening at Preservation Hall in New Orleans” featuring the Dixie Diehards Dixieland Jazz Band.

Preservation Hall in New Orleans opened its doors in 1961 as a sanctuary to protect and honor New Orleans Jazz which had lost much of its popularity to modern jazz and rock & roll.  Its founders wanted a place where New Orleans musicians could play New Orleans jazz –  a style they believed should not disappear.  Today, the Dixie Diehards exemplify this on-going commitment to keep this vibrant and unique style of American music alive.  The concert will feature a sampling of musical styles that influenced what has evolved into the popular Dixieland style of the turn of the century through the 1950’s.  Some of the dominant influences covered will be street marches, ragtime, gospel and early blues tunes among others.  Hit tunes from popular composers of the day will include Jelly Roll Morton, W.C. Handy, and Louis Armstrong among others.

The Dixie Diehards will be making their seventh appearance at the Art Center.  Their concerts have been well received by a growing audience of traditional New Orleans jazz enthusiasts.

Tickets are $10.00 for MAC Members and $12.50 for non-members.  Please stop by the Center or call 508-748-1266 to reserve your seats.

The Marion Art Center is located at 80 Pleasant St. (corner of Pleasant St. and Main St.) in Marion, MA. 02738.  Reservations are highly recommended.  Tables are available for reserved parties of 4.  Guests are invited to bring their own refreshments.  The doors will open at 7:00 PM.
