Capture the Atmosphere! Name the Tune! Tuba Skinny at Fest Jazz


More from Fest Jazz, Châteauneuf-du-Faou, Brittany, in July, 2014. Star act Tuba Skinny doing what they enjoy most – playing in the town square, New Orleans Street Style. The number, typical to their 1920s/1930s themes – New Orleans Bump by Jelly Roll Morton’s Red Hot Peppers. Even the church bells sounded a peal of applause.


Thank you, Robin, for letting me know the name of this nowadays little heard number!

    “Come to England” is the plea more and more UK Tuba Skinny fans are making. I have a question to ask them! How much would you be prepared to pay to see them? £25 at the door, because that what fans are paying in Australia during their current tour down under: See:, I’d certainly pay that much! UK Jazzers have got to realise the times they are a-changing!
