Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews’ Voodoo Threauxdown, the traveling New Orleans celebration featuring his own band Orleans Avenue plus acts like Galactic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Cyril Neville and Walter “Wolfman” Washington, is approaching the end of its summer-long run, and the mobile festival’s stop at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA, on Saturday night included a special treat for fans, when Andrews and Orleans Avenue welcomed special guest Dave Grohl to cover Nirvana’s “In Bloom.”
Grohl, who played drums for the grunge icons, sat behind the kit and busted out his classic “In Bloom” fills, while Andrews and company offered their instrumental take on the tune, with plenty of horn solos and New Orleans flair. In a post on his Instagram showing himself wearing a Nirvana t-shirt with Grohl’s arm around him (see above), Andrews thanked the Foo Fighters frontman for his guest spot, calling Grohl “one of my favorite people.”
Watch fan-shot video of the collaboration below. Andrews and his Voodoo Threauxdown now moves to Phoenix, AZ, for a show this Wednesday, September 19, before stopping at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on September 21.
