Preservation Hall in New Orleans was started by two young honeymooners who were “just passing through…”
NIVA (National Independent Venue Alliance) brought this great Relix Magazine article to our attention. It’s amazing what a community can achieve over 60 years. It’s true inspiration for our still youthful 10-year old TLC .Org.
Sandra Jaffe, who co-founded New Orleans’ hallowed Preservation Hall, passed away on Monday. Our October_November issue features a cover story on the 60th anniversary of the venerable institution that Sandra created with her husband Allan.
“My parents’ greatest creation was to offer the world this gift, by celebrating the African-American music tradition that had transformed them enough that they uprooted their lives and moved to New Orleans,” observes Ben Jaffe, the son of Allan and Sandra, who spontaneously settled down in New Orleans and founded Preservation Hall during the summer of 1961 following an extended honeymoon trip.
Sixty years later, the Hall occupies a unique place in the city and beyond, as 89-year-old clarinetist Charlie Gabriel, who remains an active member, affirms: “Preservation Hall stands at the foundation of preserving, protecting and perpetuating this music. By playing in the Hall, being a part of the Hall and even just being in the Hall, you can share in the spirit of so many great musicians that have left. What they played is still in the atmosphere, it stays in the atmosphere. It never goes away.”
Ben Jaffe is a lifelong New Orleans resident, born a decade after his parents relocated to the city. The bass and tuba player—who has long since taken up the mantle as creative director of the Hall— adds, “Their whole approach was, ‘We’re here to make this tradition available so that everyone can be transformed by the experience the same way that we were.’ My parents had the ability to bring people together. Dad wasn’t some world-class tuba player. He was the guy with the tuba who was here doing the work.”

Winter is a natural time to slow down and build up fresh reserves for the new growth of spring.
While we wish it wasn’t THIS much of a slow down with our stages being shut down, we are taking this time to dig deeper and listen to what you want moving forward for live performance and community.
What you’d like to see when we reopen both our Santa Rosa and San Francisco stages?
Michele & The Lost Church
Tuesday Mornings on Lost Church Free Radio
TUESDAY, JANUARY 24TH (replay edition)
featuring musician, actor, poet, director, and mother Sara Judge.
Hosted by Laura Benitez
Deep conversations with Mothers who are Musicians and the untold connection between creating art and creating a little human being.
Music Mamas is working to change the way society sees both mothers and musicians by elevating the often-overlooked personal stories of women who are both.
“I felt like I wanted to have a baby…have that experience of motherhood…and here was this person that wanted to do it with me. It’s kind of as simple or as complicated as that.” — Sara Judge on when things shifted after she and Laura explored a not often discussed earlier ambivalence to becoming a parent.

We feature a mix of original conversations about music and motherhood or about your favorite songs and their deeper meanings or about our shared mortality and love of living. Our station also features uniquely curated travels through the world of local and national new music of all genres, hilarious true stories, old-time radio theater horror and suspense, audio memoirs, interviews with world renowned artists, plus music from artists who have graced our theater stages or are about to, and much more!
