    XPN Welcomes: Trombone Shorty's Voodoo Threauxdown Tour featuring Galactic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, New Breed Brass Band, and more!

    River Stage at Great Plaza - Penn's Landing

    • Sunday August 12th 2018, 6:00pm to 9:00pm

    Trombone Shorty’s new album opens with a dirge, but if you think the beloved bandleader, singer, songwriter and horn-blower born Troy Andrews came here to mourn, you got it all wrong. That bit of beautiful New Orleans soul—”Laveau Dirge No. 1,” named after one of the city’s most famous voodoo queens—shows off our host’s roots before Parking Lot Symphony branches out wildly, wonderfully, funkily across 12 diverse cuts.


    True to its title, this album contains multitudes of sound—from brass band blare and deep-groove funk, to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger—and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as Andrews says, “Music brings unity.”
