Trombone Shorty and his band, Orleans Ave. may not have won a Grammy (Backatown
was nominated in the 2011 Best Contemporary Jazz category,) but they definitely won over the audience at The Conga Room on February 12, 2011. Co-headlining on a tour with Los Amigos Invisibles, Shorty and his funky band showed why they have achieved widespread success by blasting both new and old songs that are best characterized as "Supafunkrock." Both bands delivered infectious rhythms and funky beats that kept the crowd dancing throughout the night.

If he wants to, Troy Andrews can take over the universe. Ok, maybe that is an exaggeration, but with his talent and charisma, Trombone Shorty, as he is more commonly known, can, at least, rule the music world. His band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave. (www.tromboneshorty.com) came to Los Angeles for a Wagatail Productions (www.wagatailpresents.com) show at the El Rey Theater. The music was infectious, the crowd mesmerized, and Shorty clearly loved every minute.
