Mark Payton I found Tuba Skinny on Youtube a year ago and have been hooked ever since. I can't believe it took me so long to discover them! I love just about everything they play, but Crow Jane has an infectious energy that is electric - Erika nails it! Favorite track: Crow Jane.

James Sterling New Orleans Bump, Climax Rag, and Jackson Stomp are my favorite tracks on this CD. This is not their strongest effort in my opinion, but it still is worthy of your $. Can't wait for the next CD which is past due. I hope and pray that Erika's leaving New Orleans is only temporary. A breakup of Tuba Skinny would break my heart in two. Favorite track: Climax Rag.

Formed in in 2009, Tuba Skinny has steadily evolved from a loose collection of street musicians into a solid ensemble dedicated to bringing the traditional New Orleans sound to audiences around the world.

The band has gained a loyal following through their distinctive sound, their commitment to reviving long-lost songs, and their barnstorming live performances.
