About Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue
Troy “Trombone Shorty” is one of the rare artists with the virtuosity to draw the unqualified respect of some of the most iconic legends in jazz and the ability to deliver a high-energy funk rock show capable of mesmerizing international rock stars.  A product of New Orleans' culturally rich Treme neighborhood, Trombone Shorty was a bandleader by the age of six.  Now, at 23, Trombone Shorty has grown into a performer who commands the stage.  

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.  Trombone Shorty himself picked up an award for Best Trumpet and he has been named Performer of the Year twice.  Trombone Shorty has been profiled by Good Morning America and USA Today and has been featured the 2007 album Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino and the 2008 NBA All-Star game in New Orleans.

Orleans Avenue features Mike Ballard on bass, Pete Murano on guitar, Joey Peebles on drums, Dwayne Williams on percussion and Dan Oestreicher on baritone sax.

About the Rebirth Brass Band
Simply put, The Rebirth Brass Band is a New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the now infamous Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world.
 
Rebirth is committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands while at the same time incorporating modern music into their show. Their signature brand of brass funk has won over several generations of music lovers, and in a post-Katrina world, their name and music have become the   soundtrack to their musically rich hometown. 
 
In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition amongst brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.

In memory of Phil Everly, who passed away in January of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the 2014 Annual Music Masters will create awareness for the disease, which affects an estimated 24 million individuals in the United States. The progressive lung diseases include emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. Despite being the third leading cause of death in the United States, there is very little research funding for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD is a preventable and treatable disease but the lack of research, awareness and education has resulted in millions of unnecessary hospitalizations, complications and even deaths of patients. The COPD Foundation’s mission is to prevent and cure COPD and to improve the lives of all people affected by COPD.
