After absolutely killing it at BLUESFEST in 2011...TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE are back and going to be taking on Sydney and Melbourne this time round and doing what they do best...SupafunkROCK...!!!

No arguments ... a Grammy-nominated debut album, Backatown...a brand new album in hand For True and a non-stop touring schedule have won them hordes of new fans across 5 continents.

Jaded ... NO WAY ... in the middle of all this constant touring TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE found time to record a new album 'For True'. "We did over 200 shows in the last year and a half, and every night we allowed the music to take us over. Musically and creatively, we wanted to shoot for some different things."

The band - Mike Ballard on bass, Pete Murano on guitar, Joey Peebles on drums, Dwayne Williams on percussion, Dan Oestreicher on baritone sax and Tim McFatter on tenor sax - stirs together old-school New Orleans jazz, funk and soul, laced with hard-rock power chords and hip-hop beats, and they've added some tangy new ingredients on For True as they keep pushing the envelope, exploring new musical territory.

Add to that an amazing guest line-up - Lenny Kravitz, Kid Rock, Jeff Beck, Ivan & Cyril Neville ,Warren Haynes, Ledisi, Ben Ellman from Galactic, and rapper 5th Ward Weebie - and it's not hard to see why 'So True' flew to the top of the US charts.

"He's a genius player" says Lenny Kravitz.
