Bio

Tubaluba is the brainchild of Josh “Papaluba” Wilson. In 2009, Wilson gathered personnel with the philosophy that players had to be good, and players had to be cool. Musically, Wilson hoped to capture the spirit of New Orleans, and convey it with a brass street band rhythm and style.

Tubaluba is the brainchild of Josh “Papaluba” Wilson. In 2009, Wilson gathered personnel with the philosophy that players had to be good, and players had to be cool. Musically, Wilson hoped to capture the spirit of New Orleans, and convey it with a brass street band rhythm and style.

The band still plays some of the brass band and vintage soul favorites that inspired it’s conception, but is steadily writing, developing, and performing it’s own repertoire. Their self titled debut was released on Fat Tuesday 2012 to fanfare from Seattle’s KEXP radio, and the second album will be released as a vinyl 45 at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle on June 27, 2014.

Tubaluba has also conceived two signature events. The first is an annual Halloween funeral procession through the streets of Seattle to a destination venue. The second event is the Mardi Gras Party Bus. For the past two Mardi Gras’, Tubaluba has filled a large coach bus with fans who then follow the band to several performances around town from noon to midnight. This event gathers television, newspaper, radio, and blogging attention.

Tubaluba currently does most of its entertaining on the West Coast, but the band aspires to take its brand of jambalaya brass pop nationwide, targeting festivals, celebrations, and any place people want to shake it.
