The Tin Men: a classic trio, with unorthodox instruments
Sousaphone, guitar and washboard, enhanced by tin cans and hotel desk bell?
It’s not your usual musical lineup.
But in some respects, The Tin Men is a classic trio. The guitar functions as a midrange instrument producing melody and rhythm; the washboard provides percussion; and sousaphone, a portable version of the tuba, supplies the bottom end.
“Yeah, just like Cream,” said “Washboard” Chaz Leary, referring to the 1960s power trio with Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce.
