TVD Ticket Giveaway: Trombone Shorty at the 9:30 Club, 12/31

With the aid of his trusty trombone, Troy Andrews has built a persona and reputation as Trombone Shorty, a prolific New Orleans virtuosic musician who has played around the world representing his city and its colorful range of music.

Shorty leads the Orleans Avenue band with an electric charm and an heightened musicianship that speaks through his solos and melodic themes alike. This year, he released his 9th studio effort, the funk-fueled Say That To Say This. Out on Verve Forecast Records, Andrews describes the album as “James Brown mixed with The Meters and Neville Brothers, with what I do on top.”

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue are coming to the 9:30 Club on New Year’s Eve on the last of a three-night stint at the club. We have tickets to give away so that you can ring in the new year in New Orleans style.

Andrews has been making a name for himself as Trombone Shorty since he was a child. He was featured in the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival at the age of four. Since, he’s been a leader of many bands, was prominently featured in Lenny Kravitz’s backing band for his 2005 world tour, and even made appearances in six episodes of David Simon and Eric Overmyer’s HBO show Treme. He represents New Orleans with a wealth of musicianship and talent.

So how can you win tickets to such a show? It’s easy! In the comments below, tell us your favorite musical act from New Orleans. My vote goes to Jay Electronica.

The winner will be chosen at noon on Thursday, December 19.

Tickets are still available to the New Year’s Eve show with Trouble Funk supporting, as well as to the shows on the 29th with the Funk Ark and the 30th with Chopteeth.

    Not the same music genre, though they do have that New Orleans swing to their tunes.  EYEHATEGOD is one of my all time faves.
