“TROMBONE SHORTY’S VOODOO THREAUXDOWN”
NATIONWIDE SUMMER TOUR CELEBRATING
THE TRICENTENNIAL OF THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS
HEADLINED BY TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE
FEATURING GALACTIC, PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND &
NEW BREED BRASS BAND; PLUS SPECIAL GUESTS INCLUDING
CYRIL NEVILLE, IVAN NEVILLE, KERMIT RUFFINS & WALTER “WOLFMAN” WASHINGTON
The City of New Orleans, one of America’s most unique and diverse cities, celebrates its 300th Anniversary in 2018. To celebrate his hometown's tricentennial, its rich cultural heritage, and the bright future of its music, Trombone Shorty has handpicked an all-star line-up of Crescent City musicians to tour the nation as “Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown.” The revue will bring the spirit and the sound of New Orleans to 27 cities from coast-to-coast this 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, Ivan Neville, Kermit Ruffins, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, and more.
“New Orleans is the best place in the world,” says Trombone Shorty. “I want to bring people the experience of New Orleans--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.”
At a moment when musical streams are crossing with unprecedented frequency, it’s crucial to remember that throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City’s inimitable spirit and joie de vivre. Nowhere is that idea more vividly embodied than in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history.
