If you were to ask anyone in touch with the modern funk and jazz scene who the most charismatic and recognizable trombone player of today would be, it’s almost certain that they would answer with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Troy Andrews, better known as Trombone Shorty, has been leading his own band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, since 2009 when Troy was only in his early 20’s. The definition of a protege, Troy has been playing trombone since he was only 4 years old when he played on stage with Bo Diddley in his hometown of New Orleans at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. By 6 years old, Troy was playing as a bandleader and by his early teens, Troy had joined the Stooges Brass Band.
Troy’s focus these days is all on his own band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Last time Trombone Shorty came to NYC, the band had the opportunity to open for The Red Hot Chili Peppers at the infamous Madison Square Garden. Now returning to headline the beloved nightclub, Terminal 5, for 2 nights with support from Vintage Trouble, the up and coming R&B quartet.
With their new album Parking Lot Symphony out now on Blue Note Records, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave is ready to bring some new and fresh songs to their eclectic jazz, funk, R&B, hip-hop and fusion catalog.
It’s no question that these 2 show at Terminal 5 are sure to be some of the finest funky dance parties T5 has seen in recent years, tickets are still available for both nights here!
