Trombone Shorty also won top honors in the Gig of the Year - International category for his 2011 performance at Australia's Byron Bay Bluesfest.

In a related win, HBO's Treme won for Best Soundtrack (International) - it includes "Ooh Poo Pah Doo" performed by Trombone Shorty (the song was originally a hit for his grandfather, Jessie Hill, when it was first released in 1960).
