STG Presents: Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
Part Jimi Hendrix, part James Brown and all New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty”Andrews is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.
He has gained international acclaim for his trombone and trumpet virtuosity, his songwriting and his ability to blend traditional New Orleans styles with rock, funk, soul and hip-hop. NPR hailed him as “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation” and his recent 2017 album, Parking Lot Symphony, was released on the legendary Blue Note label.
A 2011 GRAMMY Award nominee for his album Backatown (Verve), Andrews’ virtuosity and high-energy live shows have drawn unanimous raves worldwide with Rolling Stone calling him a “must-see act.”
