Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue July 13th
Wednesday, July 13 at 8pm
The Ridgefield Playhouse - Ridgefield, Connecticut
With special guest Funky Dawgz Brass Band
New Orleans native Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews fronts Orleans Avenue, a hard-edged funk band that employs hip-hop beats, rock dynamics and improvisation in a jazz tradition. Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the age of six, and toured internationally for the first time at age 12 before joining Lenny Kravitz' horn section at the age of 19. He performed on the 56th Annual Grammy Awards with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Mary Lambert, Madonna and Queen Latifah, and the band has made guest appearances on Conan, Leno, Kimmel, Fallon, Arsenio, and Austin City Limits. Shorty also played himself on the HBO series "Treme," performed at the White House in honor of Black History Month and received the President's Medal from Tulane University in recognition of his charitable work with his own Trombone Shorty Foundation.
