The embodiment of soulful New Orleans sound is coming to South Shore.
Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and his band Orleans Avenue return to Tahoe to perform at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa Saturday, Jan. 26, for what promises to be an unforgettable show.
This is Andrews’ first trip back to Tahoe since the release of his most recent album, “Parking Lot Symphony,” in 2017. The record marked Andrews’ first release in roughly four years and it landed him in the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Jazz Album Chart.
However, to try to label “Parking Lot Symphony” simply a jazz album would be a mistake.
“True to its title, this album contains multitudes of sound — from brass band blare and deep-groove funk, to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger — and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as Andrews says, ‘Music brings unity,’” states the artist’s website.
Andrews teamed up with Grammy-nominated producer Chris Seefried for the album — he credits his improved vocals to Seefried’s involvement.
The album is one of Andrews’ best, but as is the case with all his music, it’s better experienced live — a Trombone Shorty performance carries the same energy as a Mardi Gras parade making its way through the French Quarter.
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue perform at MontBleu on Saturday, Jan. 26.
Tickets are $45-$55 (plus taxes and fees) and are available online at bit.ly/Shorty-tics.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8.
