Trombone Shorty is the stage moniker of bandleader, singer, songwriter, and horn-blower Troy Andrews. Raised in New Orleans’ Treme neighborhood, Trombone Shorty picked up the trombone at age four and by eight was leading his own band in parades, halls, and bars. He spent his teens playing with New Orleans brass bands and touring with Lenny Kravitz. As an adult, Trombone Shorty has logged performances on “Conan,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” the hit HBO series “Treme,” the Grammys, and at the White House. In his recordings and live performances, Trombone Shorty branches out passionately across genres, treating audiences to brass band blare, deep-groove funk, bluesy beauty, and hip-hop swagger.
“All groove and brass, people dancing, a sincere and inspiring mixture of New Orleans brass band bravado, soulful funk, and rock sizzle.” – PopMatters
