Trombone Shorty to Bring Supafunkrock to the Bluegrass
The University of Kentucky Singletary Center for the Arts will kick off its 2014-2015 season with an artist inspired by such a unique blend of musical genres that he dubbed it a whole new sound. Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12, at the Singletary Center for the Arts Concert Hall. Tickets for Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue will go on sale Monday, June 16.
New Orleans native Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews is a rare artist who can draw both the unqualified respect of jazz legends and deliver a high-energy show capable of mesmerizing international rock stars and audiences alike. With an unprecedented mix of rock, funk, jazz, hip-hop and soul, he had to create his own name to describe his signature sound: Supafunkrock! Andrews is the kind of player who comes along maybe once in a generation.
