Show-goers braved the wintry drizzle of Monday night to see Trombone Shorty at the Old Rock House in St. Louis, and the were glad they did.

The concert showcased a troop of insanely talented musicians, led by front-man, trombonist and vocalist Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews. Although Shorty’s trombone is certainly the foundation and the glue that holds the unmistakable Creole funk together, the other band members all tore it up as well.

St. Louis native Pete Murano displayed his massive chops on the guitar, completely shredding to the crowd’s amazement.  Several members of the audience just looked around at each other in a 'who IS this guy' sort of bewilderment.

Tim McFatter on tenor sax and Dan Oestreicher on baritone sax both complimented Shorty’s trombone with a sultry dynamic that only hard hitting low-toned brass can do.  Michael "Bass" Ballard on the bass and Joey “Animal” (think Muppets) Peebles on the drums made it virtually impossible to stand still, even if you wanted to.

The "Meters meets James Brown meets the Neville Brothers" flavored brand of funky soul was a show not to be missed by those looking for a taste of New Orleans, and ready for a full-on dance party stretching all the way through the encore.
