Performing at the event is New Orleans talent Glen David Andrews (the “Treme Prince”) whom Quint Davis, Producer of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival claims is “one of the giant talents of New Orleans”. With his expert trombone chops and witty stage banter, the gospel/R&B singer and trombonist is sure to set Pebble Hill on fire with his electrifying performance.
Glen David was recruited into a brass band led by his younger cousin, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, and played in both the New Birth, Lil Rascals, and Tremé brass bands, among others, lending equal measures of musicianship and showmanship to each. Now he fronts his own high-powered ensemble that touches on every style of music in the course of a show. He was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2010. He appeared in three seasons of HBO’s Treme; in numerous documentaries, including Faubourg Tremé:
