Join us in The Sheldon Ballroom for a dance party with New Orleans-based Tuba Skinny!
For over a decade Tuba Skinny has grown steadily in popularity, releasing twelve albums and touring all over the world. They’ve attracted a wide variety of fans – young and old, neophytes and niche-enthusiasts – with the strength of their musicianship and the scope of their jazz and American roots music catalog.
While they’ve become known as world-class interpreters of traditional jazz, over the years they’ve branched out into jug band music, spirituals, country blues, string band music, ragtime, and New Orleans R&B. Their approach is a true reflection of Americana, encompassing the full genealogy of popular American music from an early 20th century perspective.
