About the Performance

Trombone Shorty, also known as Troy Andrews, is on a mission to bring the sounds of New Orleans to the world. He has been an ambassador for that city's distinct form of jazz on television, appearing in HBO's Treme and NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and on the world stage performing alongside the likes of Lenny Kravitz, U2, and Green Day. Andrews' honors include a Blues Music Award, and a Grammy Award for his work on Jon Batiste's We Are.

Rapper, producer, and actor Big Boi, known best for founding hip hop group Outkast with André 3000, takes the stage at Ravinia for the first time. A winner of multiple Grammy Awards, Big Boi's radio hits include "The Way You Move," "Ms. Jackson," "Roses," and "Elevators (Me & You)."

R&B and soul artist Danielle Ponder opens the show, appearing at Ravinia for the first time. Her debut album, Some of Us Are Brave, is the result of three years of work while also serving as a public defender in her hometown of Rochester, NY.
