|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
When can I see the Terrible Tuba Band in Action?
There is some (slight) likelihood that on a Friday night after 8 pm the band may be out and around in downtown Athens, GA.
Can I book the Terrible Tuba Band?
It seems that all is too unpredictable to make bookings. Often the Model T is broken, the clowns are grumpy--or they just can't be tied down. So, basically, there is no telling when and where the Terrible Tuba Band will appear.
Might I join the Terrible Tuba Band?
Yes, but it is a very exacting process. Follow these steps:
1. Create a hobo costume out of men's suiting in the colors of grey, charcoal, and slate. You must have button-down shirt, a tie, a fedora (hat), and wig--all battered. Worn out shoes. The aesthetic is Great Depression Era.
2. Get a tramp make-up kit. Actually we're not using that style of nose (you might buy a proNose or a strap-on plastic nose or use red paint)... but the kit has all the rest, including a stubble sponge.
3. Learn to play our songs on a Tuba or Euphonium. No other instruments are permitted, including the wonderful and slippery trombone.
4. Show up on a Friday night at 7:00 sharp at Rubber Soul where we shall rehearse and/or ride out and play.
This is a band of clowns, more than professional musicians. So come to Clown School at Rubber Soul Yoga Revolution. (You don't need to wear a costume to attend that!)
An even MORE alternative path:
Create your own rival clown band. We will tell you where and when we'll be playing so that you can come out with your troupe and... well... I guess we'll see what happens.

car isn't one that we're driving in the Terrible Tuba Band, but I
thought you might like to see it. The sign says, "Touch but
please don't look."
