Trombone Shorty in Ocean City, NJ Tonight

Trombone Shorty performs at the 52nd annual Philadelphia Folk Festival in 2013 (Shaun Smith).

Funk, rock, R&B, rap, blues and jazz will explode from the Ocean City Music Pier tonight when Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue takes the stage.

Troy Andrews, the soulful leader know as Trombone Shorty is performing with Orleans Avenue 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 20 in Ocean City, New Jersey. Tickets are $40 and are available here.

Trombone Shorty closed out the 52st annual Philadelphia Folk Festival in 2013 and he made lasting impression on me. Since then the band has toured around the world and performed at shows with Ziggy Marley Foo Fighters and Gary Clark Jr.

With an updated twist on the foundational elements of American music, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue delivers a highly energetic and inspirational performance.

I’ll post throughout the show on Facebook, TwitterGoogle+ and Instagram. #TheHighNote #NewMusicFriday
