The Eagle Saloon Initiative, Winter Circle Productions, and The Joy Theater are proud to present the Resurrection Ball, an evening of incredible live music dedicated to the restoration of the Eagle Saloon, built in 1851 and one of the most important musical landmarks in New Orleans history and the world beyond. The night will commence with a performance from Dr. Michael White and the Liberty Jazz Band, a group specializing in the traditional sounds of New Orleans – the swinging, blistering, and sweetly soulful music that was first played in places like the Eagle Saloon and throughout Back O’ Town.

Following this performance, a new band, assembled specifically for the occasion and led by saxophonist and jazz legend Donald Harrison, Jr., will perform a diverse set of music from across the spectrum of New Orleans musical history. The band – called the “Rampart St. Legacy Band” in honor of the street where the Eagle Saloon still proudly stands – will showcase musical sages such as Charlie Gabriel and Germaine Bazzle, established masters like Harrison and Delfeayo Marsalis, and representatives of the newest generation of New Orleans excellence, including Sullivan Fortner, Joe Dyson, Sasha Masakowski, and John Michael Bradford.

All proceeds benefit the Eagle Saloon “Resurrection Project”
