Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

1.12.2014 @ 7:30 PM | The Egg
Lancaster Street
Albany, New York 12210

Since the release of their Grammy®-nominated debut album, Backatown (2010), and their chart-topping sophomore effort, For True (2011), Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue have continued their natural musical evolution while winning hordes of new fans and refining their signature sound – a mix of rock, funk, jazz, hip-hop, New Orleans and soul Troy ‘Trombone Shorty’ Andrews has dubbed “Supafunkrock.” On top of performing nonstop on five continents and releasing his new CD,Say That To Say This (2013), co-produced by Raphael Saadiq, Andrews has also appeared on recent recordings by artists ranging from Zac Brown to Eric Clapton to Rod Stewart to Cee Lo Green and Janelle Monáe, and he has been featured on the covers of Downbeat and Jazziz, as well as on Conan, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Austin City Limits and in a recurring role on the hit HBO series Treme. Andrews’ God-given talent, natural charisma and a relentless drive to bridge music’s past and future makes him the kind of player who comes along maybe once in a generation; that he pursues his passion with such humility and unpretentiousness makes his still-unfolding story as compelling as the music he’s making along the way.
