New Orleans native phenom–and 2010 Grammy nominee–Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue return to Chicago to perform at the best place in town to see a show. The Opposition Party and DJRC open the evening.
Troy ‘Trombone Shorty’ Andrews’ new album, Backatown (Verve Forecast April 20), is the work of a rare artist who can draw both the unqualified respect of jazz legends and deliver a high-energy rock show capable of mesmerizing international rock stars and audiences alike. With such an unprecedented mix of rock, funk, jazz, hip-hop and soul, he had to create his own name to describe his signature sound: Supafunkrock! Andrews is the kind of player who comes along maybe once in a generation, and Backatown is the latest, clearest proof that his artistry is as singular as his raw talent.
