"Preservation Hall. Now that's where you'll find all of the greats." That's what Louis Armstrong had to say about the famous New Orleans venue. And this weekend, residents of the Quad Cities will be treated to a free concert by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The University of Iowa is sponsoring the performance as part of its "Living With Floods" initiative.

On tonight's WVIK News Focus, Michelle O'Neill talks with Chuck Swanson, Executive Director of the university's performing arts center. LISTEN on the player located under the photo.

Friday night's Preservation Hall Jazz Band concert will begin at 6:30 at the bandshell in Davenport's LeClaire Park. The band will also perform Saturday at 4 pm in Iowa City, and Sunday at 3 pm in Dubuque.
