Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews got his name when he picked up his instrument at four. "My parents pushed me toward trombone because they didn't need another trumpet player," he laughs. By eight, he led his own band in parades, halls and even bars: "They'd have to lock the door so the police couldn't come in." Promoters would try to hand money to his older cousins, but they'd kindly redirect them to the boy. In his teens, Andrews played shows abroad with the Neville Brothers. Fresh out of high school (New Orleans Center for Creative Arts) he joined Lenny Kravitz' band.
