On July 10th, the Center Of Performing Arts’ Friday Night Music Club will welcome The Tin Men featuring Alex McMurray, Washboard Chaz, and Jason Jurzak. The Tin Men are America’s premier sousaphone, washboard and guitar trio. They have been performing at home in New Orleans, around the USA and abroad since 2002. Their appearance at Friday Night Music Club will be their first gig after returning from the Ascona Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
Percussionist/vocalist Washboard Chaz, sousaphonist Jason Jurzak and Guitarist vocalist Alex McMurray explore a truly eclectic array of North American Pop music from jug band to swing jazz to New Orleans R&B to Motown to Easy Listening to Heavy Metal and beyond.
Through it all they put their own zany spin on the material and make it their own. Throw in a generous dose of McMurray’s own songs, the precocious wit of Jurzak’s sousaphone and Washboard Chaz’s seemingly boundless charm and the result is what has been described as “One of the most interesting bands to emerge from New Orleans in years” (Offbeat Magazine) www.tinmenmusic.com
