New Orleans wunderkind Trombone Shorty and his band, Orleans Avenue, know how to electrify a crowd with their infectious, high-voltage blend of "supafunkrock." An "unstoppable force" (New York Times) in today's music scene, Shorty brings all the rock star swagger with serious chops to back it up. Get ready for a brash and bold music party that'll have you dancing all night long.  

In 2010, Trombone Shorty released his debut album, the Grammy®-nominated Backatown, followed by For True in 2011, which topped Billboard magazine's Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks. His newest album, Say That to This, was released in 2013 and features funk/jazz elements of New Orleans.

Trombone Shorty appeared in several episodes of HBO's Treme, and has recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel LiveLate Night with Jimmy Fallon and Conan. In 2012, he performed at the White House in honor of Black History Month with music royalty such as B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck and Booker T. Jones. At this year's Grammy Awards, he performed alongside Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Mary Lambert.

California-based trio, The Record Company, will open the show.
