Santa Barbara Debut “We were just mesmerized by him.” – The Edge, U2 “Troy possesses the rarest combination of talent, technical capability and down home soul. I’m his biggest fan.” – Wynton Marsalis “Don’t get me wrong, we got it goin’ on in New Orleans, he’s just better.” – Allen Toussaint Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is that rare artist with the virtuosity to draw the unqualified respect of some of the most iconic legends in jazz and the ability to deliver a high-energy funk rock show capable of mesmerizing international rock stars. A band leader by the age of six, Andrews is a graduate of the prestigious New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (alums include Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., and Nicholas Payton). He burst into international consciousness with the six-piece band Orleans Avenue and its unique blend of high-octane “SupaFunkRock” music and a recent Grammy nomination for the critically-acclaimed release Backatown.
