Fest Jazz 2018 “Sub Plot”: Flashback to Fest Jazz 2014!

Fest Jazz 2018
will feature the “Shake ‘Em Up” all girl Jazz Band. The girls have caused a storm since Tuba Skinny’s Shaye Cohn assembled them to perform for “Girls Rock New Orleans”.

Coincidentally, Robert Duis messaged me a fascinating “sub plot” about this Tuba Skinny clip on my Jazz & Jazz YouTube Site which I filmed at Fest Jazz 2014 :

Robert pointed out that “…the TUBA of Tuba Skinny is the TUBA of Nico Adriaensz of the www.BLUERIVERJAZZBAND.com ……the band that will play again in this venue “BAR Tal ar PONT at the Chateauneuf-du-Faou 2018 Jazz Festival. WHY? Because the Tuba of TS was damaged during the flight from Italy to France and needed repair that specific day.”

It will be great to meet up with you again at Fest Jazz this year, Robert. Hopefully you won’t need to loan your trumpet to Maria Dixon! Meantime, here is another clip, one of my favourites, which I also filmed in the fan-packed Bar Tal ar Pont at Fest Jazz back in 2014.

Roll on Fest Jazz 2018!
