During his photo shoot for Vanity Fair Magazine, Rob Pattinson had the honor to play with the house band from the historic and world-famous Preservation Hall in New Orleans.
The band, who is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year, only had good things to say about Mr. Pattinson when he sat down and played the piano.
“‘When we first started, none of us knew that Robert really does play piano,” says Ben Jaffe, the tuba player (center, above), the band’s director, and the son of the venue’s founders.
‘But when he got up there, he started ticking out these notes, and it was obvious he wasn’t just tinkling—he really knew how to play.’ Though the musicians were expecting the actor to just pose, Pattinson gamely jammed along with their tunes.
After finishing a song, he leaned over to Jaffe and said, ‘That’s the first time I’ve played with a group of guys like that.’”
I love that Rob got the opportunity to play with the Preservation Hall band!
