Troy Andrews, or Trombone Shorty as he's known on stage, is on a mission to save New Orleans' musicians. Andrews' Trombone Shorty Foundation, which is dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of the New Orleans music culture, has just launched its #SaveDatSound campaign.
The #SaveDatSound campaign is a social media-based donation push; the proceeds will be used to support struggling young musicians in the New Orleans area. For every #SaveDatSound hashtag until April 17, sponsors of the fundraiser will donate $1 to campaign. Donors contributing over $25 will be eligible for a raffle to win Trombone Shorty merchandise.
#SaveDatSound will culminate at the fourth annual Shorty Fest benefit concert at the House of Blues in New Orleans.
