With Special Guest Devon Gilfillian!
Part Jimi Hendrix, part James Brown and all New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty”Andrews is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. He has gained international acclaim for his trombone and trumpet virtuosity, his songwriting and his ability to blend traditional New Orleans styles with rock, funk, soul and hip-hop. NPR hailed him as “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation” and his recent 2017 album, Parking Lot Symphony, was released on the legendary Blue Note label. A 2011 GRAMMY Award nominee for his album Backatown (Verve), Andrews’ virtuosity and high-energy live shows have drawn unanimous raves worldwide with Rolling Stone calling him a “must-see act.”
Devon Gilfillian fires twin barrels of gospel-blues and southern soul. His music is fueled by groove, guitar, and the powerful punch of Gilfillian’s voice. Don’t miss your chance to see this young songwriter who grew up outside of Philadelphia, absorbing everything from the R&B swagger of Al Green and Ray Charles to the rock & roll heroics of Jimi Hendrix.
