The Tin Men
The Tin Men are quite simply The world's premier sousaphone washboard and guitar group. Performing since 2002, The Tin men have released Three CDs most recently 2013's Avocado Woo Woo, 2005's Freaks For Industry and 2003's Super Great Music for Modern Lovers.
Respected performers on their individual instruments, percussionist/vocalist Washboard Chaz, Sousaphonist Matt Perrine 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 Perrine'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" (Josh Cohen—Offbeat Magazine)
