Waterfront Concerts is proud to present Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown with Tank and The Bangas, Big Freedia, Cyril Neville: The Uptown Ruler, George Porter Jr and Dumpstaphunk perform the music of The Meters, The Soul Rebels live at Bold Point Park, East Providence, RI on Friday, June 17th, 2022.
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,” Trombone Shorty says.
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue’s music respects Crescent City traditions while pushing the boundaries of those traditions, 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 says. "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. It's the full package and an expression of what is unique and beautiful about New Orleans.
