WILMINGTON — R&B, funk, blues, reggae and rock permeated Greenfield Lake Amphitheater when horn player Trombone Shorty took the stage Memorial Day weekend.

Joined by his Orleans Avenue band, they delivered on high-octane energy, performing songs from a 12-album catalog (read PCD’s interview with the artist from 2022 here).

Also known as Troy Andrews, Trombone Shorty is a child prodigy and son of Treme in New Orleans, who has performed with musical royalty worldwide through his decades-long career. He visits Wilmington annually to bring rich sounds, styles and heritage of the Big Easy to the Port City.

Below are photos from the show, captured by Tom Dorgan of MoonFrog Media.
