An Evening With The Preservation Hall Jazz Band

Along with the performance, you'll hear PHJB members in discussion about their celebrated founding members, their pioneering approach towards their craft and why it's so important to them to continue to pass on the lessons of their music to younger generations. GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli will moderate the event.

An Evening With Henry Butler

Monday, April 11, 2011; 8 p.m.
Blending together a rich amalgam of blues, Caribbean, roots, pop, blues and jazz influences, it's not an exaggeration to say that Henry Butler is a brilliant musician.  Join us as we welcome him for a unique multimedia experience, discussion and performance.  Although blinded by glaucoma since birth, Butler knows no limitations.  As a pianist, he is a master of musical diversity, and Butler's music is as excitingly eclectic as that of his New Orleans birthplace.   As a photographer, he's world-class, with his work displayed in exhibitions across the United States and a documentary about it, "Dark Light:  The Art Of Blind Photographers," currently showing on HBO. Hear Butler, along with GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli as moderator, discuss Butler's commitment to constantly push himself in new directions and why he can't be pigeonholed.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $15. Tickets can be purchased at the Museum Box Office or online at Ticketmaster.com beginning Friday, March 11, 2011 at noon. All proceeds benefit The GRAMMY Museum. For more information, please call (213.765.6800) or visit grammymuseum.org.
