Trombone Shorty

Today, Ivan Neville has announced ‘Touch My Soul,’ his first solo album in nearly 20 years, out 4/21 via Mascot Label Group / The Funk Garage. Tough-minded but tender, filled with joy, beauty, and pain, ‘Touch My Soul’ exudes an unmistakable New Orleans ambiance while breathing new life into Neville’s singular sound. It’s both a love letter to the Crescent City and a celebration of Neville’s emotional and spiritual journey as an artist, a father, and a man.

The 25th Rhythm & Roots Music, Dance, and Food Festival will feature headliners Greensky Bluegrass, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and Dumpstaphunk, who will join more than 20 other bands at Ninigret Park over Labor Day weekend.

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.

Greenwich Wine + Food has announced the culinary talent that will be participating in The Big Easy at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York on Saturday, March 4, bringing the flavors and fun of New Orleans to life. Beneficiaries include two national non-profit organizations with roots in Connecticut - The Jacques Pépin Foundation and Wholesome Wave. Premium sponsors include Wagoneer and Greenwich Hospital.

The event, named Bound to Cover Just a Little More Ground, will speak to the community’s collective resilience and focus to remain steadfast in bringing about positive social change. This spirit has been present in each grant Rex has given out to recognize the inherent value of the powerful work that Rex Foundation has given out since its inception in 1984.

Even more great news about Rex Foundation's return to the Fillmore on December 3: We're delighted to announce a special guest appearance by the Trombone Shorty Academy from New Orleans!

The Trombone Shorty Academy is a project of this year's Ralph J. Gleason Award recipient Trombone Shorty Foundation, whose mission is to inspire the next generation of talented youth through music education, instruction, mentorship, and performance.

This past Tuesday night, born-and-bred New Orleans musical icon and ambassador Trombone Shorty performed an electrifying rendition of his new song “Lifted” with an 11-piece band on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. It marks his third time on The Late Show and kicks off a summer of key appearances and a major U.S. tour that includes headlining dates at Central Park SummerStage, Red Rocks and The Hollywood Bowl.

Following the success and fun of last summer’s tour together, Gov’t Mule – led by GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend, and producer Warren Haynes – and GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter, and horn-blower Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue have announced a run of five co-headlining shows for this August. The two bands will bring their acclaimed live shows to Oshkosh, WI, Huber Heights, OH, Roanoke, VA, Outer Banks, NC and Columbia, SC, with the latter as a rescheduled date from last September.

Capping an historic April that has included his first-ever Grammy win, an appearance on the Grammy Salute to Paul Simon (airing later this year on CBS), and a deeply revealing 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,” Trombone Shorty today has released Lifted, his first album of original music in five years.
