Trombone Shorty, Orleans Avenue 

When: Sat., June 3, 8:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $18

As the grandson of legendary New Orleans R&B singer and songwriter Jessie Hill, Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews cut his teeth in the Tremé music scene and appeared onstage at the New Orleans Jazz Festival when he was still smaller than his instrument. As Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Andrews and his skilled quintet expertly meld the energy of his early work in the Stooges Brass Band with funk grooves, hip-hop beats, and rock muscle. They cover classics from the likes of Allen Touissant and The Meters, carrying the flag for the Crescent City while serving as a vital link between its past and present. Andrews also mentors and comanages tonight's opener, New Breed Brass Band, whose members—many of whom claim lineage in some of New Orleans's most heralded musical families—infuse brass traditions with youthful energy. —Spencer Griffith
