Placide Adams was an exemplary and stalwart proponent of traditional New Orleans jazz.

Born Aug 30, 1929 near Algiers, Louisiana, He then toured with early rhythm and blues stars like Clyde McPhatter, Ruth Brown, Roy Brown, B.B. King and Big Joe Turner. But in the 1960s, Placide returned to traditional jazz, becoming a founding member of Preservation Hall. In 1978, Adams became the fourth leader of a New Orleans institution - The Onward Brass Band (founded in 1886), and remained the bandís leader right up until his death. But, in addition to the Onward Brass Band, Adams was also leader of the Original Dixieland Hall Jazz Band. From 1991 until he died in 2003, he was a fixture with the band at the popular Hilton Hotel in New Orleans.
