BEN HARPER & THE INNOCENT CRIMINALS with TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE
August 25 @ 6:00 pm
Beginning with his 1994 debut, Welcome To The Cruel World, Ben Harper released a string of eight studio albums over a decade and a half. This extraordinary run, featuring contributions from the Innocent Criminals, established him as a singularly powerful songwriter and performer. Massive, international sold-out tours, Top 10 debuts in the US, Gold and Platinum certifications overseas, and a slew of TV appearances cemented Harper and the band’s status as genuine global stars.
Part Jimi Hendrix, part James Brown and all New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty”Andrews is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. He has gained international acclaim for his trombone and trumpet virtuosity. A 2011 GRAMMY Award nominee for his album Backatown (Verve), Andrews’ virtuosity and high-energy live shows have drawn unanimous raves worldwide with Rolling Stone calling him a “must-see act.”
Years before she toured the world alongside Alicia Keys, wrote songs with John Legend, belted Southern rhythm and blues with Muddy Magnolias and kicked off a solo career with 2019’s Phase, Jessy Wilson grew up in Brooklyn, listening to the diverse sounds that filled her family’s apartment. Those influences come together on Phase, the Grammy-nominated songwriter’s first release as a solo artist.
