“Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown” is a curated mini-festival, a history of New Orleans music, and a vision of where that music is headed in the 21st century.

“I want to share the music and the vibe of my city,” he said.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue’s music respects Crescent City traditions while pushing the boundaries of those institutions, adding pop, rock and hip-hop influences.

"Allen Toussaint told me, ‘Learn everything you can, take everything you can from us, but don’t be us,’ " Shorty said. "The responsibility put on me is to move the music forward.”

The other artists on the “Threauxdown” – Tank and the Bangas, Big Freedia, Cyril Neville the Uptown Ruler, George Porter Jr. and Dumpstaphunk playing the music of The Meters, and The Soul Rebels – are of the same mindset. Together, they represent different generations coming together to celebrate and advance the sounds of New Orleans in one jam-packed night of live music and collaboration.

"These are people that I grew up listening to, people I came up with, and people who have been inspired by me and my band,” Shorty said. “It's the full package and an expression of what is unique and beautiful about New Orleans."

Additional 2022 concerts at Artpark currently on sale include: Lake Street Dive (May 29); Bon Iver (June 7); Patti LaBelle (June 21); Barenaked Ladies with Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket (July 5); Tedeschi Trucks Band with Los Lobos and Gabe Dixon (July 12); “Weird Al” Yankovic (July 29); Earth, Wind & Fire (July 31); Jack White (Aug. 21); and Dispatch & O.A.R. with G. Love (Aug. 23).
