Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is that rare artist with the virtuosity to draw the unqualified respect of some of the most iconic legends in jazz and the ability to deliver a high-energy funk rock show capable of mesmerizing international rock stars. A band leader by the age of six, Andrews is a graduate of the prestigious New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (alums include Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., and Nicholas Payton). He burst into international consciousness with the six-piece band Orleans Avenue and its unique blend of high-octane “SupaFunkRock” music and a recent Grammy nomination for the critically-acclaimed release Backatown.
