Tuba Skinny will play a fine acoustic concert on Wednesday, May 15th, at 7:00 PM.
Tuba Skinny is a band that takes its listeners back in time to the traditional
jazz and old blues music of the nineteen twenties and thirties. The members
have been playing together since meeting on the streets of New Orleans five
years ago, & officially began playing as Tuba Skinny during the spring of 2009.
These folks booked this concert on short notice and are in Austin only a few days.
They are recommended by consumate Austin jazz musician, Jon Doyle, who recently found
them in New Orleans. Jon tells me they put on a great performance. I can't wait
to see 'em play!
They have released three albums.
-- Erika Lewis - Vocals
-- Todd Burdick - Tuba
-- Ryan Baer - Guitar and Banjo
-- Shaye Cohn - Cornet and Fiddle
-- Barnabus Jones- Trombone
-- Robin Rapuzzi - Washboard
-- Austin Ace, Jon Doyle, will sit in! - Clarinet and Sax
Doors open at 7:00 and the concert is 8:00 to 10:00.
