New Orleans’ Saenger Theatre is gearing up for the eighth edition of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue’s iconic Treme Threauxdown concert, set to take place on Saturday, April 27. The highly anticipated event coincides with the first weekend of the Jazz and Heritage Festival, promising an unforgettable night of musical celebration. The star-studded lineup of guest performers is yet to be revealed, but based on past years, fans can expect an eclectic mix of talent spanning various genres.

Over the years, Treme Threauxdown has featured an impressive array of artists, including Jon Batiste, Mavis Staples, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Eric Church, Usher, Joan Jett, Gary Clark Jr., and surprise appearances by the likes of Nick Jonas, Dierks Bentley, Steve Miller, and Wyclef Jean—all sharing the stage with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.

Fresh off a five-day cultural exchange trip to Cuba from January 11-15, Trombone Shorty and his ensemble participated in the third edition of the “Getting Funky in Havana” festival. The highlight of the trip was a record-breaking mega concert at Club 500, drawing over 15,000 people—the largest crowd in Cuba in the last four years. Trombone Shorty cohosted a monumental U.S-Cuba jam session at Havana’s Fabrica de Arte Cubano, featuring over 30 artists from both countries. The collaboration with Guillermo Tomas Music Conservatory, facilitated by Trombone Shorty’s Foundation in partnership with Horns to Havana, included a significant donation of instruments to the school.

Looking ahead, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue are gearing up for the inaugural Shorty Gras tour, kicking off on February 16, just days after Mardi Gras. This three-week tour will bring the high-energy New Orleans party to the East Coast, featuring special performances alongside another New Orleans staple, The Soul Rebels. Shorty Gras, a beloved tradition since its launch in 2020, is set to hit the road for the first time, bringing the distinctive Mardi Gras party experience to new audiences.

Trombone Shorty, known for his multifaceted musical talents, has been making waves beyond the stage. He produced New Breed Brass Band’s debut album, “Made In New Orleans,” which received a GRAMMY nomination for “Best Regional Roots Music Album.” Additionally, Shorty’s significant contributions were recognized with a GRAMMY win for his work on Jon Batiste’s Album of the Year-winning “We Are.”

As Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue continue to break musical boundaries, the upcoming Treme Threauxdown and Shorty Gras tour promise to be standout events on the 2024 music calendar. Fans can undoubtedly expect an electrifying showcase of talent and a celebration of the vibrant cultural heritage of New Orleans.
