New Orleans funk jazz soul party!

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue brings soul, a funky party and a New Orleans big band to AB. Or, as frontman Troy Andrews informed us: "multitudes of sound—from brass band blare and deep-groove funk, to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger—and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as Andrews says: 'Music brings unity'."

For fans of Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair, The Meters, The Neville Brothers, The Wild Tchoupitoulas... là Nouvelle Orléans quoi, of course, but also Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Mark Ronson, Raphael Saadiq... Know too that Trombone Shorty was already welcome in The White House on several occasions.
In the press Quickly check out the trailer in the first video.
Fun fact His artist name, of course: It literally grew up with him, Troy was apparently already playing his first trombone at the age of four (as there were already plenty of trumpet players in the family)!



L’ingénieur du son était extrêmement mauvais! Les artistes ont fait ce qu’ils ont pu! Un Larsen à durer pendant les 5 premières chansons, inacceptable pour un concert à l’AB à 25€ la place! Le saxophone baryton est apparût vers la 6ième chanson, avant cela il était inexistant! Extrêmement déçu!!!
All the impressive talent on stage wasted by lousy soundcontrollers who didn't understand the finesses and masking their errors by too many DB's. 1/ outstanding musicians with both technical and emotional skills, great songs, very well done you guys 2/ I hope you fire the soundcontrollers as they destroyed their performance with unappropriate mixing and +92db volume. (thx AB to supply earplugs!)
Record company : echt goed Trombone Shorty : inderdaad de klank was echt niet ok.
Stond op mijn bucket list. Blew me away ! Spijtig van de foutjes met de klank (zoals zovelen reeds opmerkten) en soms was de mix een beetje 'lost in space'.. Voor de rest zeer genietbaar. Feestje !
Subliem! Een echte ontdekking. Ik ben meteen fan! Jammer van de klank, dat kon zeker veel beter.
na een verassend goede openingsband (ontdekking van bj scott/classic 21 ,!,) volgt een goed concert van uitstekende muzikanten maar het amerikaans showgehalte en hoge echogehalte moet je er een beetje bijnemen en idd heeft de klank al veel beter gezeten in deze prachtlocatie. eigen mix of hun soundengineers? stomende new orleansfunk waar in vroegere tijden zeker op gedanst zou zijn tot het zweet van het plafond drupte,
Trombone Shorty was amazing and the energy of the whole band was awesome. However, there was a BIG problem with the sound: many larsen effects, the musicians didn't seem comfortable either (removing their earpiece several times), the mix was a bit rough and did not enable us to hear whole the parts of the music correctly. A bit disappointed for my first time in this renown concert place of Brussels!
The energy that Shorty and his band transmits is amazing. One of the best concerts of my life (and I've been to many!). Of course that being in love for the Big Easy, New Orleans, is a plus :-)
Les musiciens et l'ambiance étaient top par contre le son était très très mauvais pendant toute la première partie du concert. Le mix ressemblait à une grosse soupe et il était très difficile de distinguer correctement les différents instruments. Vraiment dommage pour une salle comme l'AB.
Super musicien(s), ambiance d'enfer, high energy level (wow) dommage que le son ne suivait pas par moments. AB.. peut mieux faire à ce niveau là. Sinon ça reste une de mes salles préférées.
Concert exceptionnel, quelques petits soucis de son, mais quel super moment..
