Tuba are young, but their sound transports you back to the '20s and 30's jazz age as they pay tribute to singers like Bessie Smith and throw in a few originals. Their sound is tight, and they happily share the spotlight. Each musician gets the chance to showcase their own instrument in toe-tapping solos. And even the audience can get involved, as Tuba invites the audience to enjoy the big, beautiful dance floor in front of the stage. So if you know the Charleston or the Lindy Hop, come on down (and if you don't - dance anyway).
Tuba Skinny are understated and humble. They seemed a little shocked each time the audience roared their appreciation. They're simple, laid-back, like-able and incredibly talented.
Only in town for another two nights as part of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, don't miss you chance to see Tuba Skinny live in a great intimate venue.
Buy a ticket now and make sure to take $20 with you to get one of their CDs after the show (they even stick around to sign it for you).
