“My school band needed a tuba player so I said I’d have a go. Every time I played I was surrounded by laughter. I thought, if that’s how music is then that’s how I want to live. Of course the reality is not so simple but the essence is still there.”
Gut Rumble is a Tuba ensemble that numbers anything between 6 and 70 tuba players. The group plays improvisations, new compositions and arrangements and essentially creates vibrations of great profundity, literally rumbling the guts of large buildings and generally spreading bemusement and hilarity amongst those fortunate enough to be present.
