Jazz-funk artist Trombone Shorty ventures to South Shore with his band Orleans Avenue this weekend — so get ready to dance.

“Trombone Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the tender age of six, and toured internationally for the first time at age 12 before joining Lenny Kravitz’s horn section at the age of 19 for a 105-date world tour in 2005-2006,” states the artist’s online biography.

The group took the stage at the 56th annual Grammy Awards alongside Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Madonna and Queen Latifah.

Trombone Shorty had a recurring role in HBO’s “Treme,” and also performed at the White House in honor of Black History Month in 2012.

“Good things continue to happen for Trombone Shorty, thanks to his virtuosity, his dedication and his ability to move people. That he pursues his passion with such humility and unpretentiousness makes his still-unfolding story as compelling as the music he’s making along the way,” concludes the bio.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue headline MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa on Saturday, March 11, at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the gig range from $30-$40, plus tax and fees, and can be purchased via Ticketmaster.

The venue is located at 55 U.S. 50 in Stateline, and additional information is available online at http://www.montbleuresort.com.
