Trombone Shorty at The John G Shedd Institute for the Arts
New Orleans native Trombone Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the young age of six, toured internationally at age 12, and spent his teens playing with various brass bands throughout New Orleans and touring worldwide with Lenny Kravitz. He is currently the front man for his own ensemble Orleans Avenue, a funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop band. Together, Trombone Shorty and the band have toured across the U.S., Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan and Brazil. In 2010, Trombone Shorty released his debut album, the Grammy®-nominated Backatown, followed by For True in 2011, which topped Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks. His newest album, Say That To Say This, was released in September 2013 and features funk/jazz elements of New Orleans.
This will be Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue's 3rd stop at The Shedd. Should be phenomenal.
