Tuba Skinny is a New Orleans traditional jazz band which formed in 2009. Their home is New Orleans, Louisiana. Tuba Skinny's ensemble includes tuba, trombone, cornet, tenor banjo, guitar, vocals, washboard, and clarinet, and is inspired by the early jazz and blues music of the 1920s and 1930s. The band has performed on streets and stages around the world, including music festivals in Mexico, Sweden, Australia, Italy, France, Switzerland and Spain.
