Together, Trombone Shorty and the band have toured across the U.S., Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan and Brazil. In 2010, Trombone Shorty released his debut album, the Grammy®-nominated "Backatown," followed by "For True" in 2011, which topped Billboard magazine's Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks. His newest album, "Say That to This," was released in 2013 and features funk/jazz elements of New Orleans. Trombone Shorty appeared in several episodes of HBO's "Treme," and has recently appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and "Conan." In 2012, he performed at the White House in honor of Black History Month with music royalty such as B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck and Booker T. Jones. At this year's Grammy Awards, he performed alongside Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Mary Lambert. In 2012, he received the President's Medal from Tulane University in recognition of his charitable work with the Trombone Shorty Foundation. In collaboration with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the Trombone Shorty Foundation donates quality instruments to schools across New Orleans.
JuBee and the Morning After
JuBee and the Morning After is "a venture for the charismatic frizzy fro'd half of City Council, who brings a passionately nerdy group of backing rockers to flesh out a pop sound that will surprise you" (Macon Telegraph).

JuBee and the Morning After features the magnetic vocal delivery of JuBee, a rapper that provides "deep, emotion-filled lyrical creations" (Savannah Urban Arts Festival), and a slew of musicians with accolades of their own right. The rhythm section is comprised of Captain Danny Effin Davis (bass, backing vocals) and Alex Scarborough (drums) whom hail from Athens, Ga based R&B conglomerate Dope John Paul. Matt Moncrief a singer/songwriter from Atlanta, Ga, Austin Young on Keys/Sax round out the permanent members of the group. Influenced by the transparent honesty of Hip-Hop fundamentals and the energetic groove of 1970's funk and R&B, JuBee and the Morning After is an eclectic blend of Indie Rock, Hip-Hop, throwback Funk, and look forward soulful southern Rap. Its so good that the hipsters might shed the hoodies and wish they could dance.

With dozens of mixtapes under his belt, a fresh new EP and LP in 2011, and having shared the spotlight with Dumpstaphunk, Deltron 3030, Gym Class Heroes, Yelawolf, Curren$y, The Cool Kids, Raheem, and Al Scarborough of Stillwater, JuBee and his team have the experience and the drive to bring a party so hard that fans will never forget JuBee and the Morning After the morning after.
