The current director, Ben Jaffe, is the son of Preservation Hall Founders Allan and Sandra Jaffe. www.preservationhall.com

Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra
The 12-piece Brooklyn based band blends New Orleans party music, old school soul in the style of Ray Charles and Al Green, a good helping of jam-bandy Roots Rock and a splash of feel-good upbeat gospel music. When you combine the music with a one-of-a-kind, high-energy stage spectacle, you got yourself one heck of a revolution on your hands. http://www.brotherjoscephus.com/
