Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
Called “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation” by NPR, Trombone Shorty (aka Troy Andrews) has rocketed into the public eye over the past few years. Recent career highlights include closing the New Orleans Jazz Festival, appearing in a Lenny Kravitz documentary, releasing the acclaimed “Say That to Say This,” regular appearances on the acclaimed HBO series, “Treme,” and stopping the show at last May’s Avila Beach Blues Festival. He tore it up! JUST ADDED – THE RECORD COMPANY… Killer!
The Grammy-nominated musician and his band, Orleans Avenue, know how to get a crowd going with their infectious, high-octane blend of tight funk, jazz-rock and slinky R&B – or, as they like to call it: “Supafunkrock.” An “unstoppable force” (The New York Times) in today’s music scene, Shorty brings all the rock star swagger with serious chops to back it up.
