Trombone (and sometimes ‘Trumpet’) Shorty Andrews & Orleans Avenue came and brought lots of brass (The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Austin Knights Brass Band) to ACL Live at the Moody Theater last night (2/16). Here are some pictures from the Austin show.

While this show was not a taping for the PBS show that tapes in the same Austin (City Limits) theater, it did happen less than a week before Andrews heads to DC to tape another show for PBS at the… White House!

Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews has been invited to perform at The White House on February 21st as part of the Black History Month celebration, In Performance at the White House: Red, White & Blues. Troy will be joining an all star cast including Jeff Beck, Gary Clark, Jr., Shemekia Copeland, Buddy Guy, Warren Haynes, Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Keb Mo, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, with Booker T. Jones as music director and band leader. The event will be taped for broadcast on PBS premiering Monday, February 27 at 9 p.m. ET (check local listings) and streamed live on www.whitehouse.gov/live , www.pbs.org/whitehouse and www.blackpublicmedia.org

In addition to his performance, Troy will also participate in a special education program earlier that day in The White House with Michelle Obama, Keb Mo and Shemekia Copeland. The artists will appear before an audience of students from across the country to discuss the Blues and take part in a Q & A with moderator Bob Santelli and members of the audience.
