      Shorty Fest (5.2.13) - A Benefit for the Trombone Shorty Foundation

      We're proud to announce "SHORTY FEST: A Benefit for the Trombone Shorty Foundation!" Thursday, May 2 at Generations Hall... with performances by Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave. and more. Don't miss Trombone Shorty's ONLY night time show during the 2nd weekend of Jazz Fest. About the Trombone Shorty Foundation: In New Orleans, music is everywhere: the clubs, the churches, the streets, the schools, and in the air. It’s celebrated as an essential part of life—past, present and future. Native son Louis Armstrong said it best: “What we play is life.” America’s original musical art form—jazz— originated here, and over time so did many other styles, including rhythm and blues, funk, and rock and roll. Through the years these traditions have been handed down from one generation to the next. New Orleans musicians understand the importance of teaching the younger ones this heritage, allowing them to carry on the city’s vibrant musical culture. This keeps it alive and renewed and continues to make our city such an exceptional place. At The Trombone Shorty Foundation, we proudly contribute to this time-honored tradition of passing it on. Although many kids in New Orleans play an instrument, it’s a select few like Trombone Shorty who have the opportunity to pursue music as a career on a national stage. By providing the next generation the necessary skills to achieve success, both in music and in life, the foundation helps preserve and perpetuate our way-of-life. Through nurturing an understanding among our future musicians that they will soon carry the torch of our musical culture, the Trombone Shorty Foundation empowers them with the pride, education, and skills to play it forward.
