So who are Tuba Skinny? They are a group of young musicians who migrated to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and met while busking on the streets. New Orleans has been their base ever since. That is where they spend the temperate months. But during the heat of summer they tour in the northern states and abroad. They have played in Spain, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Mexico, and Australia. This year they toured extensively in Belgium, France and in Holland, where they participated for several weeks in a new venture, working in an entertainment complex that included a circus.
