Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown is the beloved singer, songwriter, horn-blower, and Orleans Avenue bandleader’s ode to New Orleans—a curated mini-fest of music respecting Crescent City traditions while pushing their boundaries with pop, rock, and hip-hop influences. “Allen Toussaint told me, ‘Learn everything you can, take everything you can from us, but don’t be us,’ ” Shorty says. “The responsibility put on me is to move the music forward.”

The other artists on the Threauxdown—Tank and the Bangas, Big Freedia, Cyril Neville (the Uptown Ruler), George Porter Jr. and Dumpstaphunk (playing the music of The Meters), and The Soul Rebels—are of the same mindset. Together, they represent different generations coming together to celebrate and advance the sounds of New Orleans in one jam-packed night of live music and collaboration. “These are people that I grew up listening to, people I came up with, and people who have been inspired by me and my band,” Shorty adds. “It’s the full package, and an expression of what is unique and beautiful about New Orleans.”
