Troy ‘Trombone Shorty’ Andrews brings his hard-edge funk band to McMenamins Historic Edgefield Manor in Troutdale, Saturday, Aug. 19.

Part Jimi Hendrix, part James Brown and all New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a hard-edged funk band performing Saturday, Aug. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the McMenamins Historic Edgefield Manor in Troutdale.

Employing brass-band beats, rock dynamics and improvisation in a jazz tradition, Andrews has been called “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation,” by National Public Radio, and New York Magazine wrote that “Trombone Shorty takes in a century-plus worth of sounds—ragtime and jazz and gospel and soul and R&B and hip-hop—and attacks everything he plays with festive fervor.”
