Since the release of their Grammy-nominated self-titled debut album in 2010, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue have won hordes of new fans while performing nonstop across five continents.
Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, a New Orleans native, grew up playing music in the Tremé neighborhood. Since his early childhood, he has been active in the city’s music community, performing in brass-band parades and local venues. After attending the prestigious New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts, Troy went on to pursue a solo career and has recently released his sixth album, Backatown. His latest album with Orleans Avenue, For True, further refines the signature sound Troy has dubbed “Supafunkrock” – a blend of old-school jazz, funk and soul laced with hard-rock power chords and hip-hop beats.
