Andrew Bird

Folk, Indie, Pop, Rock
Andrew Bird picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent years learning classical music completely by ear. As a teen he became interested in jazz, country, blues and gypsy music, synthesizing them all into his own style of pop music. Since beginning his recording career in 1997, the now Chicago-based film score composer and multi-instrumentalist has gone on to record music with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and perform in Carnegie Hall. His latest release, 'Break It Yourself,' which was produced by Bird, has garnered high praise, including this from 'The Guardian': "The perfect album: tender without being sentimental, experimental yet accessible, utterly unique to its maker."

Pink Martini

Jazz, Swing, Pop, Latin/Salsa, World
Pink Martini was formed in 1994 by aspiring Portland politician Thomas Lauderdale, who got the idea to provide more entertaining, uplifting music at political functions for causes such as civil rights, education, public broadcasting and more. A year later, Lauderdale called on former Harvard classmate China Forbes to join the band, and together they began writing songs together for the "little orchestra." Since then, the group has been known for drawing its inspiration from a myriad of sources, including romantic Hollywood musicals of the '40s and '50s, and a multilingual repertoire of diverse genres like jazz, Latin, lounge and classical, all shaken and stirred with cinematic influences, driving rhythms and exotic vocals. A typical Pink Martini concert spans the globe, from Cuban rumba and Parisian cafe tunes to Carnival disco.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

Jazz, Funk, Rock, R&B/Soul, Rap/Hip Hop
Trombone Shorty (Troy Andrews) began playing the trombone at age six and since 2009 has played with his group Orleans Avenue. Despite the nickname, he is equally adept on trombone and trumpet and is a man to be reckoned with on both. In 2009, New Orleans' premier music magazine, Offbeat, awarded Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue Best R&B/Funk Band for the second year in a row.
