Two more KettleHouse Amphitheater concerts were announced Tuesday.

Trampled by Turtles and the Lil Smokies are heading to the 4,000-capacity venue on Saturday, July 21; and Trombone Shorty's Voodoo Threauxdown will play on Tuesday, Sept. 11.

The Turtles, a bluegrass-folk group from Minnesota, will headline and the Smokies will open. The Turtles are coming to town with new material: In May, they'll release, "Life is Good on the Open Road," their first since 2014. The Smokies released their second album, "Changing Shades," in September, and toured on the Jam Cruise, a festival held on board a ship, in January.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14. They run $32.50 to $37.50 depending on the seating tier. To purchase, go to the Top Hat box office, or call 877-987-6487.


Trombone Shorty, who's played the Top Hat and the Wilma, is returning with a mini festival's worth of artists. The New Orleans jazz-funk trombonist will perform with his band, Orleans Avenue, and special guests Cyrille Neville, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, and Kermit Ruffins. He'll headline after sets from Galactic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the New Breed Brass Band.

Tickets are $35 to $45 depending on the tier. They'll go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20. To purchase, go to the Top Hat box office, or call 877-987-6487.
