Tuba SkinnyWhen a loose collection of young street musicians met in New Orleans in 2009, they had no idea that their love of early jazz and blues would keep them together for seven years and counting, as well as six swinging albums, including their latest, Owl Call Blues, which OffBeat.com praises for its “masterful ease” and “melancholy mojo in even the spritely dance tunes.” With Erika Lewis on vocals, Todd Burdick on tuba, Jason Lawrence on guitar, Gregory Sherman on guitar and vocals, Shaye Cohn on cornet, Barnabus Jones on trombone, Robin Rapuzzi on washboard, and John Doyle on clarinet, the band draws on a wide range of musical influences, from ragtime to traditional jazz, spirituals to Depression-era blues, and their distinctive sound evokes the rich musical heritage of their New Orleans home.
