This Dallas band certainly served up some gospel on Sunday morning, which began with clear skies despite the muddy aftermath of Saturday’s showers. It was powerful, easy listening that justifiably excited the crowd, preparing us for the final day of the festival. Although the group certainly performed for the large crowd, the show really made me eager to catch these guys in a smaller, more intimate venue.
Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Leave it to these New Orleans-based pros to make my Sunday morning as fun as my Saturday night. One of the most delightful things about seeing these guys in person is seeing 81-year-old Charlie Gabriel deliver the same kind of spirited and impassioned performance that I imagine he’s given for decades, but I also love the way that the band divides the spotlight between all of its members. Given the recent successes of That’s It!, their first album of original content in the band’s long and rich history, I would argue that there’s never been a better time to see the way this band performs.
