Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown is a curated mini-festival, a history of New Orleans music and a vision of where that music is headed in the 21st century. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue’s music respects Crescent City traditions while pushing the boundaries of those traditions, adding pop, rock and hip-hop influences.
The other artists on the Threauxdown – Tank and the Bangas, Big Freedia, George Porter, Jr. and Dumpstaphunk playing the music of The Meters, and The Soul Rebels – are of the same mindset. Together, they represent different generations coming together to celebrate and advance the sounds of New Orleans in one jam-packed night of live music and collaboration. “These are people that I grew up listening to, people I came up with, and people who have been inspired by me and my band. It’s the full package and an expression of what is unique and beautiful about New Orleans.”
