Trombone Shorty Teams Up with Dr. John, Gary Clark Jr., Earth, Wind & Fire, Janelle Monae for Halftime Show

Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue had the honor of leading the halftime show at the NBA All Star Game—which took place last night in New Orleans’ Smoothie King Arena—and the hometown heroes were joined by a number of special guests during the extended medley.

Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue kicked things off with their own “For True” before going into “Hurricane Season” for a little bit. The band then got some help from local legend Dr. John, who came out for a rendition of the NOLA classic “Iko Iko.” Gary Clark Jr. was next up, as the band backed him on his own “Bright Lights.” The blues guitarist was then followed by singer Janelle Monae, who took the stage for her original “Electric Lady.” Finally, Earth, Wind & Fire joined the fray to close things out with their hit “Shining Star.”

Local legend Dr. John? Mac is much much more than a local legend

Gary Clark, Jr. did NOT write “Bright Lights, Big City”. It’s a Jimmy Reed song from 1961 which Gary covers
