Trombone Shorty brings Mardis Gras to Lake Tahoe in Hard Rock doubleheader with Ziggy Marley

Trombone Shorty
Trombone Shorty had a sellout show last year at MontBleu.

Who dat!
Perhaps New Orleans’ hottest musician, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews appears at the Hard Rock Arena Thursday as the co-headliner with Ziggy Marley.

Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue will open the show at 7 p.m., according to promoter Paul Reder of PR Entertainment.

It will be the fourth outdoor show at the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe.

A band leader since he was 6-years-old, Trombone Shorty, now 29, isn’t short anymore. He and his band’s high energy show last August at MontBleu was impressive, especially considering the Lake Tahoe Basin’s elevation is 6,300 feet. The performance was as filling as a plateful of crawfish etouffee with a beignet for dessert.

“We need to come back up here more often,” Shorty told the enthused Lake Tahoe crowd.

Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue played a 15-song, 1 hour, 45 minute set a year ago. Tim McFatter played tenor sax and Dan Oestreicher the baritone sax. Joey Peebles was on drums, Pete Murano the guitar and animated Michael “Bass” Ballard was on bass.

While Thursday’s show starts with a rocking version of a NOLA second line parade, it will finish with Marley, who told Tahoe Onstage, “We look forward to coming up and playing some music. We’ve been rehearsing a lot, so I’m looking forward to coming up to play some music for the people.”

Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue toured the East Coast earlier this month, appearing with Gary Clark Jr. and the Foo Fighters. Shorty and Orleans Avenue will be back with the Foo Fighters for a European tour in November.

Last year, Trombone Shorty collaborated with esteemed illustrator Bryan Collier on a children’s book that tells how he overcame adversity to become a successful musician who revels in the culture of New Orleans.
