Multi-instrumentalist Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews brings his R&B, rock, rap and funk brass band Orleans Avenue to blow the roof off UPAC for the very first time!

Rare indeed is the 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. Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is one such artist – and there is no one else like him. Trombone Shorty is equally adept on trombone and trumpet and is a man to be reckoned with on both. A product of New Orleans’ culturally rich Treme neighborhood, Trombone Shorty was a bandleader by the age of six. While navigating New Orleans with his band in tow, he was also absorbing lessons from his older brother James, a dynamic musical performer known as “Satchmo of the Ghetto.” By the time Trombone Shorty was twelve, he had a Ph.D. in the ways of the streets, which you can still hear in his music.

“Dance Alert”
This is a reserved seated event but the Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue show is a veritable party. There will be points during the show that the band will encourage the audience to stand, participate and dance.

It’s a party!
Come early and enjoy the Brasskill second line on Broadway starting at 5pm, and grab dinner in a great Kingston restaurant before celebrating UPAC’s reopening!

Made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.  #restartNYgrantee!
