Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue: Partying by example
Grand Opening of Washington’s, Fort Collins, February 3, 2018
It was an energetic romp on stage for Trombone Shorty and band. This is where the stage movement is just as important as the super-funky, horn-punctuated music, the yelps and posturing of the group inciting the same from the seriously partying fans. They were just showing them how to have fun and their style is to just get into the heart-pumping groove and don’t stop. Of course, it helps that the band is capable of stop-on-a-dime musical changes while working on their crazy crowd-rousing moves.
