Warren Haynes Band performed at New Orleans’ extremely intimate Preservation Hall Friday night. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band opened the show and Haynes joined the legendary group at the end of its set for a take on “St. James Infirmary” (a song the group played with Warren Haynes Band a night earlier). Before the rest of his new group emerged, Haynes treated fans to solo versions of “Indian Sunset “ and “Hallelujah.“ The meat of Warren Haynes Band’s set consisted of full-band takes on “Raining Pain Down In New Orleans,” “River’s Gonna Rise,” “On A Real Lonely Night,” “Your Wildest Dreams” and “A Friend To You.”
Near the end of its set, Warren Haynes Band also invited out the Preservation Hall horn section for “Man In Motion .” Both the Preservation Hall horns and the members of Warren Haynes Band then closed the night with the encore rendition of
“A Change Is Gonna Come.”
Haynes will perform in Greenwood, MS today as part of the
Celebrating 100 Years of Robert Johnson concert.
