Trombone Shorty 2014 Concert Schedule
If there's one city in America that should be credited as the music capitol
of the country, it's New Orleans. As the birthplace of jazz, blues, funk, and rock and roll, New Orleans has produced some
of the world's greatest musicians, from Louis Armstrong to Trombone Shorty. While somewhat new to the international music
scene, Trombone Shorty is no newcomer to music, as he has been practicing and honing his skills since he was just four years
old. His performances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and the "Late Show with David Letterman" have
garnered him admiring fans not only across the country, but around the entire world. Trombone Shorty is a musical anomaly
that only comes around every few generations, so make sure to see him and his band, Orleans Avenue, perform at the Avila Beach
Resort in California on May 25th. Buy your tickets to see Trombone Shorty on StubHub today!
About Trombone Shorty
1990, somebody handed a 4-year-old boy by the name of Troy Michael Andrews a trombone, and his life was forever changed. Growing
up in New Orleans, Troy was always surrounded by the rich culture of jazz and blues, and his neighbors would rarely see him
walking the streets of the Treme neighborhood without a trombone in his hands. In fact, Troy was so young and so small that
his trombone was twice his size, and people in the neighborhood took to calling him "Trombone Shorty". The name stuck.
the time he was eight years old, Trombone Shorty was a bandleader, imparting his musical knowledge and talents on other aspiring
young musicians. And just two short years later, his prodigious way with the trombone sent him out on the road and he became
a touring musician. In his early teenage years, Troy was a trombonist for the Stooges Brass Band, and he recorded and played
with the band in shows across the country, bringing the soulful and crooning trombone sound to breathless crowds. In 2005,
Troy toured the world with Lenny Kravitz as a part of his horn section. No matter how many countries he visited or how many
cities he fell in love with, Troy always came back to his hometown of New Orleans, which he believes gave him the soul and
the passion he needed to pursue his love for the trombone. Trombone Shorty has recently experienced monumental career success,
one of the most notable being his performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards. While on stage with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Madonna,
Queen Latifah, and Mary Lambert, Trombone Shorty and his band Orleans Avenue performed as 33 couples were married on national
television. That same weekend, he performed at two sold out venues in LA and appeared as a guest musician on Conan. What started
out as a young boy's first love has turned into a wildly successful musical career that has been lit on fire, so make sure
you see this young and passionate trombonist and buy your tickets on StubHub today!
Shorty released his album, Backatown in 2010, which skyrocketed on Billboard magazine's Contemporary Jazz Chart until it hit
number 1, where it stayed for nine consecutive weeks. Since then, his musical success has only progressed. In 2012, Trombone
Shorty's single, "Do To Me" played before both semi-final games of the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament on CBS.
You may also recognize his musical talents from In Performance at the White House: Reds, Whites, and Blues, a special PBS
program where Trombone Shorty performed at The White House for the Black History Month celebration in February.
Trombone Shorty is not just dedicated to music, but he's also devoted to inspiring other young people
to pick up an instrument just as he had been when he was young. By founding the Trombone Shorty Foundation, Troy has helped
perpetuate the musical legacy of New Orleans while giving young, undeserved musicians the opportunity and encouragement to
purse their passion for music. With the help of the Trombone Shorty Foundation, young musicians can benefit from encouraging
mentors and the means to allow music a place in their lives.
