Rock/funk/rap/jazz trombone player and trumpeter Troy Andrews, AKA Trombone Shorty, brings his band Orleans Avenue to Des Moines' East Village on Tuesday for a concert at Wooly's. Andrews was a member of the Stooges Brass Band and also Lenny Kravitz's horn section, and he performed with U2 and Green Day at the reopening of the Superdome in Andrews' native New Orleans. In 2005, Andrews started Orleans Avenue, and in 2010 the band had their first #1 Contemporary Jazz album, Backatown. The album would stay at #1 for nine consecutive weeks. From there, Andrews would record with Galactic, Eric Clapton, Lenny Kravitz, and Dr. John, the latter on the Academy Award nominated song "Down in New Orleans". Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue released For True in 2011 and Say That to Say This last year. Andrews has also performed at an NFL playoff game and at the White House. Tickets for the Wooly's show are $25 in advance and $27 at the door. The music will kick off at 8:30 p.m. with a performance by St. Paul and The Broken Bones. This will be an all ages event.
