New Orleans celebrates its 300th anniversary in 2018. To celebrate his hometown’s rich cultural heritage and the bright future of its music, Trombone Shorty has assembled an all-star lineup of Crescent City musicians to tour the nation as “Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown.” The revue brings the spirit and the sound of New Orleans to 27 cities from coast to coast in August and September.
Headlined by Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, the touring street party also features Galactic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and New Breed Brass Band, plus special guest appearances by Big Easy legends Cyril Neville and Walter “Wolfman” Washington.
“New Orleans is the best place in the world,” Trombone Shorty says. “I always encourage people to come to the city and see what made me, what influenced me, but not everyone can come visit. Plus there’s a lot of other musicians in the city who feel the same way, who play this music and have their own take on keeping tradition alive. With this show my friends and I want to spotlight New Orleans, bring joy and fun and partying to the nation, because that’s what New Orleans creates. That’s what our music is about.”
