Preservation Hall - Tales of the Cocktail 2016
Not only does Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans bring out some of the biggest and baddest liquor infused parties in the world, intimate events are also thrown during the week which can be more entertaining to document than the big ones. In all of my years of workin' Tales gigs I've never been to Preservation Hall, I'm not sure what took me so long. This place is a masterpiece and feels like it's been around for hundreds of years. On a normal night, I wouldn't be allowed in with my cameras. Since we were covering a private party with TOTC, we were permitted to take pictures from certain areas. Ultimately we could only take a few images of the jazz band performing. Initially upset with our limitations to cover the event, I quickly realized how nice it was that the caretakers were enforcing a no photography rule. I always have my camera gear on me during Tales. It was a memorable moment to put the cameras down for an hour and truly absorb the sights and sounds of this unique entertainment hall. This was a definitely a night to remember for me, thank you Pernod Ricard for hosting such an amazing event!
