Preservation Hall Jazz Band To Appear on American Horror Story Tonight

This has been a watershed year for New Orleans’ Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Beginning with the July release of That’s It!, the band’s first album of original compositions in its entire 50+ year history, and continuing with first-time appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live and a week-long residency at New York’s McKittrick Hotel. But tonight the band embarks on another first, appearing on FX’sAmerican Horror Story which airs at 10pm EST.

That’s It! was produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and Ben Jaffe and recorded at The Preservation Hall.  As these are all brand-new compositions, band members Ben Jaffe, Charlie Gabriel, Rickie Monie and Clint Maedgen wrote for the album and collaborated with Paul Williams, Dan Wilson and Chris Stapleton on several songs.

This November the band will continue to tour and perform in hallowed halls across the country, including an appearance at New Orleans’ Voodoo Festival on November 1stand an historic performance at New York’s Apollo Theater. Head below for a full list of upcoming show dates.
