Troy Andrews, better known as his stage name Trombone Shorty, is a musician from New Orleans. As the younger brother of trumpeter and bandleader, James Andres, and the grandson of singer and songwriter, Jessie Hill, Trombone Shorty has been surrounded with music his entire life. He is best known for his skills in trombone and trumpet, but can also play the drums, organ and tuba. Working with some of the biggest names in rock, pop, jazz and funk, Trombone Shorty started his own band, Orleans Avenue, and has been touring with them since 2009.
A six-piece soul band from Birmingham, AL, St. Paul and The Broken Bones has been bringing the funk since they formed in 2012. With two albums and two singles under its belt, the band has opened for many iconic bands while touring, including The Rolling Stones. The band is composed of vocalist Paul Janeway, guitarist Browan Lollar, bassist Jesse Phillips, drummer Andrew Lee, keyboardist Al Gamble and trumpeter Allen Branstetter. Their second album, Sea of Noise, was released in September 2016 and continues to climb the charts.
