Alpenglow Concert Series: The Tin Men
August 20, 2018 @ 5:30 pmFREE
New Orleans’ Tin Men are America’s premier sousaphone, washboard and guitar trio. Together they explore a truly eclectic array of North American pop from jug band, swing jazz and New Orleans R&B to Motown, easy listening, heavy metal and beyond. Through it all they put a zany spin on the material and make it their own through nationwide tours and five albums to date. As individuals they’ve shared the stage with greats such as Elis and Branford Marsalis, Kermit Ruffins and Anders Osborne, opened for Muddy Waters and Keb’ Mo,’ and played venues such as Voodoo Fest, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Offbeat Magazine describes them as “One of the most interesting bands to emerge from New Orleans in years.” The Tin Men feature the boundless charm of Washboard Chaz (percussion and vocals), the precocious wit of Matt Perrine (sousaphone), and the generous dose of originals by Alex McMurray (guitar and vocals).
Come rain or shine at Red Mountain Park in Crested Butte South.
