    The Preservation Hall Jazz Band will be touring the United States with their longtime friend and fellow New Orleans icon Allen Toussaint.

    It's the Oh Yeah Tour!

    The band, which is based out of the legendary French Quarter venue Preservation Hall, has performed around the world and toured with a diverse list of artists, from My Morning Jacket to The Blind Boys of Alabama, but has never before toured America with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted singer, pianist, songwriter, and producer known for penning many New Orleans classics including "Southern Nights" and "Working in a Coal Mine."

    "After all these years of playing together in New Orleans and coming to the same festivals here and there around the world, it is amazing that we never hit the road as a package before," said Preservation Hall band leader Ben Jaffe. "It was almost as if we've always just assumed it had already happened, and then one day it was like, 'Oh yeah, we need to do this thing' and the Oh Yeah! Tour was born."
