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. Drawing on a wide range of musical influences—from spirituals to Depression-era blues, from ragtime to traditional jazz—their sound evokes the rich musical heritage of their New Orleans home. The band has gained a loyal following through their distinctive sound, their commitment to reviving long-lost songs, and their barnstorming live performances.

Home sweet home... Greetings! We're back home in New Orleans. Keep an eye on the schedule there on the left for upcoming shows. Otherwise, you can usually find us busking on Royal Street's pedestrian mall on Friday and Monday afternoons. Thanks and take care...
