Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue


Headliner Trombone Shorty, a New Orleans icon (born Troy Andrews) got his start earlier than most, performing at Jazz Fest with Bo Diddley at age four, leading his own brass band at six, and as a teenager hired by Lenny Kravitz for his Electric Church World Tour. He’s since released four chart-topping studio albums; collaborated across genres with Pharrell and Bruno Mars to Ringo Star and Foo Fighters; and played Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Newport Folk, and Newport Jazz. With Lifted, Shorty and his bandmates tap into the raw power and exhilarating grooves of their legendary live show, channeling it all into a series of tight, explosive performances that blur the lines between funk, soul, R&B, and psychedelic rock.
