Today, we are giving away a pair of tickets to see Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue at the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, Dec. 31.

Troy Andrews aka Trombone Shorty is bringing this band Orleans Avenue to celebrate New Year’s Eve at the 9:30 Club — two weeks from tonight! Trombone Shorty himself is a funky jazz bandleader who is an unparalleled performer on the trombone and trumpet. This performance will actually cap off a three-night run at the 9:30 Club, and it will include a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.

Feel free to leave any comment, but perhaps share your favorite song by Trombone Shorty! One entry per email address, please. Tickets for this show are also available through Ticketfly.

For the rules of this giveaway…

Comments will be closed at 5pm and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

Tickets will be available to the winner at the 9:30 Club Guest List window one hour before doors open on the night of the concert. The tickets must be claimed with a valid ID. The winner must be old enough to attend the specific concert or must have a parent’s permission to enter if he/she is under 18 years old.

  1. Oh man, these guys can jam. This show will be AMAZING. Pick me, pretty please! I don’t have NYE plans yet!

  2. Okay, so here is the deal. My wife and I live in Lafayette, Louisiana and we are visiting some great friends in Washington, D.C. for the holidays and will be there for New Year’s Eve. A few months ago we discussed going to this show and I mistakenly thought we had decided not to go. Well, today I find out that our friends thought we were going and planned a big night for New Year’s Eve. So I feel like a complete idiot. My wife thinks I’m an idiot (What’s new??) and I’m pretty sure our friends think I am too. Basically, we need these 2 free tickets, well…I NEED these 2 free tickets. If I EVER want to be forgiven for this and get out of the doghouse I NEED these tickets. Please consider my request, my begging, my graveling. I appreciate your time with this email, have a good day.

  3. I failed to mention our favorite song. It is “Long Weekend”. We like it because all weekends should be long!

  4. Born and raised in New Orleans and would love to see some brass band funk from my man trombone shawty to ring the new year.

  5. My wife asked for tickets two weeks ago. I went online and was ready to push the button but asked her to check with her friends. She never got back to me so I ended up forgetting to buy the tickets. I am now under the dog house. It would be great to go.
