I'm not really a bluegrass nut, but it's music my dad grew up with, plus I really like playing my mandolin. And it's harder than you would think. No, not much bluegrass on the tuba. That gets into some weird grey area in between polka. . I've got my electrified instruments, too. I really dig the blues.

Heh. It's not bluegrass, and it's definitely not tuba, but try to get hold of a copy of "Tubas in the Moonlight" by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band...

I like it...I don't play, but frequently go to listen to a bluegrass jam at the local taproom every other Tuesday.

I play the mando, have a Weber and an electric Godin. Absolutely love playing. Actually a number of my brewing buddies play and so brewing and jamming often are one-in-the-same. My church has a band and I have played with them, but it isn't a habit. Too much else to do on Sunday mornings. Hope the gig is fun!

I have heard it. In fact, a friend of mine who is getting his masters degree in tuba performance was going to do it in his masters recital. I'm going to play the banjo part.

The gig went ok, but there was some confusion about the set up at the place we were playing. They told us they had a sound system. We brought some equipment anyways. Good thing we did because we neede to sep up almost a complete system ourselves. Everything went ok though

Was going to? Did he change his mind or something? (IIRC, there is no tuba actually played in the song. At least not in the version I have. They've chickened out and used a bass trombone. )

So how are the funds? Raised?

Yeah, everything went well, just a lot of stress getting everythig set up. Once that was done, everything went fine.

I don't know what version of the song it is, but the version of the song I heard had what sounded like an 1800's crooner with a banjo for rhythm, with a tuba trio or quartet. When I say "was", it's because it hasn't materialized yet. My friend took some time off school, and started working a full time job for a local police dept. His hours are crazy because he's a rookie.

Man, I hope he's still going to go through with the degree. The world needs more tuba players. Perhaps he can use his tuba as a policeman's whistle?

(And the crooks will look at each other, terrified, and say: "Uh-oh. It's the brass copper!")

Is it an electric tuba ? Is it " Tubadelic" ? Let me just say, for the record, that if Monkey Jr. went off to college and decided to major in tuba, he'd be doing it with my foot up his butt, and on his own nickel. Ever heard a good tuba solo ? Can you name a great tuba player?

I'm sure I'll go to Hell for this one..
