Trombone Shorty
Terminal 5, Midtown West Saturday December 8 2012 20:00
Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews grew up playing alongside New Orleans' nimblest brass men. Now in his twenties, he's developed into one of the Big Easy's best, playing trumpet and composing, as well as continuing with the ’bone. For all his refinement, his powerhouse band, Orleans Avenue, pumps out the raw grooves, co-opted by hip-hop for maximum ass-moving. The Soul Rebels, a NOLA funk group, share the bill.
