fun, bluesy and always in the groove..With their fifth album, Sing With Me, a follow-up to the On the Shady Side (2015), which was largely focused on covering New Orleans jazz, blues and R&B classics, they return to the mix of...

The Tin Men are America's premier sousaphone, washboard and guitar trio. They have been performing at home in New Orleans, around the USA and abroad since 2002, and in August 2015 have released their fourth CD, "On The Shady Side" which was produced by Mark Bingham. Like 2013's "Avocado Woo Woo", 2005's "Freaks For Industry" and 2003's "Super Great Music for Modern Lovers", the new CD finds percussionist/vocalist Washboard Chaz, sousaphonist Matt Perrine and Guitarist vocalist Alex McMurray exploring 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" (Offbeat Magazine)
