New Orleans musical icon and ambassador Trombone Shorty has announced a major tour for this summer.  The headlining run will begin in June with four performances on the East Coast, where Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue will be joined by Yola, Mavis Staples, Robert Randolph Band and Devon Gilfillian. The tour will continue throughout July and August in the Midwest and West Coast with Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, co-headliner Ziggy Marley, Mavis Staples, and Robert Randolph Band.  In addition to this summer headlining tour, he will also perform the closing set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival this May.

It’s been a remarkable year for Trombone Shorty, who released his most recent album, Lifted, last April.  He performed “Shotgun” at the MusiCares Person of the Year event honoring Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson during Grammy week this month and also performed at the Grammy Salute to Paul Simon Concert which aired this past December on CBS.  Additional television appearances in 2022 included the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, ESPN’s Sportscenter, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Good Morning America.

Shorty spent much of 2022 with his band headlining prestigious venues including Red Rocks, the Hollywood Bowl and Central Park Summerstage.  Just last week, he helped to kick off the Mardi Gras season in New Orleans with his 3rd-annual Shorty Gras concert following the Krewe of Freret Parade, which featured his very own parade float.  In January he led a cultural exchange trip to Cuba in partnership with his own Trombone Shorty Foundation. The five-day “Havana Funk Expedition” trip celebrated the longstanding musical and cultural connections between New Orleans and Cuba. Other 2022 highlights include his first-ever GRAMMY win for his work on Jon Batiste’s album, and an in-depth interview with Marc Maron's WTF podcast where Marc attested “I can’t remember the last time I heard a power horn band like that.”

Since 2010, he has released four chart-topping studio albums and collaborated across genres with Pharrell, Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, Foo Fighters, ZHU, Zac Brown, Normani, Ringo Starr, and countless others.
