Musical Variety at the DCA

Rising Appalachia

On June 26, New Orleans’ Preservation Hall Jazz Band will bring their joyful brand of Louisiana jazz to Door Community Auditorium (DCA). Since 1961, Preservation Hall Jazz Band has sustained and expanded the rich tradition of jazz that permeates life in the Crescent City. Whether performing at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, for British royalty or the king of Thailand, Preservation Hall Jazz Band shines with an exuberant, timeless spirit.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band will perform at 8 pm. Tickets range from $24 to $46.

After their house-rocking debut at DCA in 2013, genre-bending sister band Rising Appalachia returns on June 29. Passionate and enthralling, Rising Appalachia centers on multi-instrumentalist sisters Leah and Chloe Smith, who wrap their haunting vocals around banjo, fiddle, kalimba, djembe, spoon, and washboard accompaniment, fusing a broad array of world music traditions with their own deep Appalachian roots.

Rising Appalachia will perform at 8 pm. Tickets range from $18 to $32. Advance reservations are recommended and can be made through the DCA box office, located at 3926 Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open Monday through Friday, 12 – 5 pm. Tickets can be purchased in person, on the phone at 920.868.2728, or online at
