The only drawback at all of the Warner Theater is that the seats are pretty tight and not made for long-legged folks. If you can get past that though, everything else was grand!

Totally loved the quality music. We arrived about 45 minutes before the start and didn't have any time getting tickets, etc. Even had time for a glass of wine.

Description

A soulful, uplifting tribute to the spirit and the sounds of New Orleans since 1939, The Blind Boys of Alabama have sung a powerful blend of traditional and contemporary Gospel music. Though much has changed during seven prolific decades, the four-time Grammy winners and members of the Gospel Hall of Fame have a global following as diverse and fervent as ever. They are joined on this special evening by the Crescent City’s most revered guardians of the New Orleans Jazz tradition, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
