Trombone Shorty Graces USPS JazzFest Envelope
Never known to mail it in, Trombone Shorty is set for what could be a coronation during JazzFest over the next two weeks. And that's sayin' something for a guy who appeared on the JazzFest poster and dueted with Mayor Mitch last year. The man born Troy Andrews will close out the Acura Stage on the Fest's final day instead of the Neville Brothers, and host his very own Fest next week. Proving yet again that he's everywhere, Andrews also gets a spot on a government-approved piece of Fest swag: the U.S. Postal Service's commemorative envelope.
The envelope is set to be unveiled Thursday at a public ceremony at Cafe Istanbul inside the New Orleans Healing Center (2372 St. Claude Ave.), which begins at 11 a.m.
Featuring Andrews in a rare pose sans sunglasses and a classic pose of the locally-bred star playing his horn, the envelope can't fit a whole CD from the fest, but it's plenty loud.
"Trombone Shorty is not just an incredibly talented young man, but he is
Andrews will be on hand to sign the envelope both at the unveiling ceremony and at JazzFest's own post office on Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m. The envelope costs $15.
