Bluesfest favourite Trombone Shorty is bringing his energetic fusion of funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop to back to Australia. The New Orleans native 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 now fronts the band Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, together they 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 magazine's Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks!
His performances are high energy, soulful and totally full of joy, don't miss them when they hit Sydney and Melbourne in April 2017.
