PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $16-$70.

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band was named for the venerable French Quarter venue — founded in 1961 and, shortly thereafter, the center of the New Orleans' jazz scene — it played. There, the Charter members were joined by the likes of Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong. Today, under the leadership of Ben Jaffe, the son of founders Allan and Sandra Jaffe, the band continues to tour, record and serve as a leading ambassador for New Orleans jazz. PHJB joins the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Israel Getzov, at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Prior to each concert, Happy Tymes Jazz Band will be working it second-line style on the front steps of Robinson, and Starving Artist Cafe will offer red beans and rice.
