New Orleans native Troy Andrews fronts funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop band Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. He began his career as a bandleader at the young age of 6 and spent his teens playing with various brass bands throughout New Orleans and touring worldwide with Lenny Kravitz. Trombone Shorty released his most recent album, “Parking Lot Symphony,” in 2017 and his 2011 album, “For True,” topped Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz chart for 12 weeks. He has backed Macklemore and Madonna at the Grammys, played on albums by Zac Brown and Dierks Bentley, opened tours for Daryl Hall & John Oates and Red Hot Chili Peppers and played the annual fest-closing set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
In two minutes and 42 seconds, Chubby Checker revolutionized popular culture and changed the music business forever. When he appeared on “American Bandstand” in 1960 and performed “The Twist,” it was the dawn of a new era in rock ‘n’ roll. He stands alone as a one-of-a-kind rock icon: 36 hit records, the only artist to have a single go to No. 1 twice and, according to Billboard, has the No. 1 single for the whole decade of the ’60s. Checker was awarded the first Platinum Single and the first Rock Grammy, and has sold an astounding 250 million records over the years.
