TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE
Trombone Shorty is nothing short of a star in his hometown. I mean, he was one of the special guests that helped the Foo Fighters finish out their set at Voodoo Festival in New Orleans last weekend. If you are a fan of funk infused parties or have ever seen the man live, then you’ll understand why this horn maestro has risen to the top in a city that is dominated by stellar musicians. I mean, the guy was a band leader at the age of 6, and, in the mere 20 years since then, he has played pretty much any festival that you can imagine, and has collaborated with everyone from U2 to Green Day to Lenny Kravitz to Jeff Beck to Kid Rock. I know a lot of you out there that sling the brass around, and, if you aren’t telling everyone you know to go to this show, you are just jealous.
ROOTS OF A REBELLION
Roots Of A Rebellion shouldn’t be strangers to purveyors of this little rag, and they also aren’t strangers to the stage at Marathon having most recently opened there for Slightly Stoopid and Tribal Seeds. When we think of the smooth stylings of Roots Of A Rebellion, we think dubby, horn drenched reggae party jams that will perfectly suit the fun vibes to help you work off some of the previous evening’s Thanksgiving feast. Check out their video for “Giving Tree” below, just to get an idea of why you need to be there on time!
