Concert Information

The city of New Orleans, one of America’s most unique and diverse cities, celebrates its 300th anniversary in 2018. To celebrate his hometown’s tercentennial, its rich cultural heritage, and the bright future of its music, Trombone Shorty has handpicked an all-star lineup of Crescent City musicians to bring the The Big Easy to Ravinia with “Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown” on Aug. 26.

Headlined by Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, the touring street party also features the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and New Breed Brass Band, plus special guest appearances by Big Easy legends Cyril Neville, Ivan Neville, Kermit Ruffins, Walter “Wolfman” Washington and more.

“New Orleans is the best place in the world,” says Trombone Shorty. “I want to bring people the experience of New Orleans—I always encourage people to come to the city and see what made me, what influenced me, but not everyone can come visit. Plus, there’s a lot of other musicians in the city who feel the same way, who play this music and have their own take on keeping tradition alive. With this show, my friends and I want to spotlight New Orleans and bring joy, fun, and partying to the nation, because that’s what New Orleans creates. That’s what our music is about.”
