Trombone Shorty will perform the National Anthem at the New Orleans Saints regular season opener

Posted Aug 30, 2013

The New Orleans Saints will open the 2013 regular season against the Atlanta Falcons in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, September 8

New Orleans Saints

Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews will perform the National Anthem at the New Orleans Saints regular season opener against the Atlanta Falcons in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on September 8.

The Saints and Falcons will kickoff at Noon CT.

Shorty's third album for Verve Records, Say That To Say This (releasing Sept. 10), was co-produced by Andrews and kindred spirit Raphael Saadiq, and sounds like nothing else out there, as Andrews and his longtime band, Orleans Avenue—guitarist Pete Murano, bassist Mike Ballard and drummer Joey Peebles—continue their natural musical evolution. In a very real sense, the torch is passed from one great New Orleans band to another on the new album, which features the first new studio recording from the original members of the legendary Meters in 36 years, as they revisit their 1977 classic “Be My Lady,” with Andrews singing lead and playing horns.

Andrews' previous projects include 2010's Grammy-nominated Backatown and his sophomore effort, For True, which spent 12 weeks atop Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Chart. Since For True’s release in 2011, Andrews has recorded with an eclectic assortment of artists ranging from Zac Brown to Eric Clapton to Rod Stewart and Cee Lo Green, while taking the time to initiate a mentoring program at Tulane University via his Trombone Shorty Foundation. He’s appeared on the covers of Downbeat and Jazziz magazines, performed on Conan, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Austin City Limits, and was featured in a recurring role on the hit HBO series Treme. The band was also chosen to play the closing set at the 2013 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, a huge honor in the world of true music lovers.
