TubaNews.com : 46 years ago the French players were still desperately trying to keep their tradition of using small bore tenor tubas in C; the French tuba. I have spoken to conductors who performed in France during that period and their frustration was intense.

International Tuba Day : Unfortunately, many non-tuba players think of the tuba as just being one of those big, loud instruments that go “oompah” in the back of parades – having no real importance and being easy to play – they’re just there to look nice.

They have been playing in clubs, bars, concert halls, music festivals, weddings and other occasions. The live act was an immediate success in all forms of the scale between a tied concert hall and wild alcohol soaked parties.
