Biography

Trombone Shorty is a jazz musician, producer, actor, and philanthropist from New Orleans, Louisiana. Coming from a family of jazz artists, he learned to play the trombone at the age of 4 and soon started performing live.

Born Troy Andrews, Trombone Shorty mastered various instruments at a very young age. Apart from trombone, he plays drums, tuba, and organ. Soon after graduating from high school, he toured with Lenny Kravitz as part of his horn section.

He performed with plenty more artists over the years, including Steven Tyler, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Mark Ronson, U2, Green Day, Jeff Beck, Madonna, and many others. Together with his band Orleans Avenue, he released a great number of fantastic albums, each more successful than the last.

Perhaps one of his most notable performances was in 2012 when he performed at the White House to celebrate the Black History Month.

Andrews also dipped his toes in the acting world, appearing in NBC’s comedy-drama TV series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and HBO’s TV series Treme.

Through The Trombone Shorty Foundation, he personally donates instruments to schools in New Orleans and helps aspiring musicians reach their goals.
