    Hi Andy do you know who played the Tuba for your band in the late 60's.

    No too sure if we still have a instrument manifest from that long ago, will do our best to find out for you.

    I just wanted to let the player know that the Tuba has gone to a good home and is still sounding great, that is of course if the player is going strong.I have a few band gags on youtube, I'm doing a few notes on a Regent that I use in my comedy act.
