The Deal

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

  • “Supafunkrock”: how bandleader Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews describes the band’s genre
  • What that means: New Orleans jazz, plus some extra funk and soul, plus louder guitars, all blown up to arena size
  • How the Austin Chronicle summed up Shorty’s appeal in a 2010 review: “An incredible horn player and surprisingly effective singer, Shorty commands the stage with the swagger of an MC, his opening horn stabs hitting as hard as any hip-hop beat and practically begging for a guest verse from Weezy.”
  • Where you’ve seen Trombone Shorty blow his horn: on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Austin CityLimits, and in a recurring role on HBO’s Treme
  • Other artists who’ve shared the stage or the studio with Shorty: Eric Clapton, Lenny Kravitz, Dave Matthews Band, Rod Stewart, Janelle Monáe, and Cee Lo Green
  • Latest album likely to make your neighbors come and dance on your lawn: Say That to Say This

Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts

Since opening its doors in 1955, Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts has attracted arts attenders from across the Northeast. The reason is clear: a short hop, skip, and a jump from the garage and you're immersed in the center's robust programming, which places special emphasis on top quality entertainment, as well as music, dance, and comedy from all corners of the globe. Yo-Yo Ma, Wynton Marsalis, and Jon Stewart have all commanded the attention of auditors tucked into more than 2,300 seats. Things get more intimate for the venue's Cabaret Series, which won Connecticut Magazine's Best Cabaret award. During these nights, the space takes on a cozy nightclub ambiance thanks to candlelit tables and a variety of acts, from acclaimed pianists to improv troupes.
