ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“ A five - piece groove machine ” Who Weekly

“ As a live act, these guys are a must see ” DB Magazine

“They shun the convention of girl leaves boy and boy writes song” The Age

"The thinking man's daggy" Kim Lynch - the Loved Ones

They make THAT - do WHAT!
Tuba, trombone, saxophone, drums, congas and a whole world of percussion. Singing, whistling, dancing, rapping and fooling around. Thirty three kilos of brass, five voices and seventy seven percussion instruments. Tightly arranged Slightly deranged.

Mint slice and a curry laksa
Oxo Cubans’ album - “Traces of Nuts” is a collection of 23 original songs beautifully remastered from their catalogue. Twenty three of the Oxo’s most requested songs from the pointed to the poignant, from manic to meditative including Tim Tam Slam, Roof rack and Letter L.

20 years of making stuff up and making stuffups
In twenty years the Oxo Cubans have created 5 albums, completed 57 tours, opened and closed just about every festival in Australia and made 1,8,673,000 people dance, sing, laugh and think as they make tuba, trombone, sax, drums and percussion mix with well woven harmonies to move you in all sorts of ways. Afro latin pop funk rock. Music for the knees, heart, brain and spleen. They play a lot of styles, but it all comes out sounding Oxo. During that time they have managed to explode 2 tuba players and one drummer, crash two hire cars (into each other)and completely demolish a lot of people’s unhapiness. We’d love to go on more about it here but why don’t you just send us an email and say Hi. hi@oxocubans.com

Oxo Cubans : Scissors / Paper / Rock !

About the snowball
Three band members set up the groove, the other two hit the dance floor and demonstrate how to dance. Then the music stops. The two dancers go and find a partner each, the music starts and now there are four on the dance floor, dancing. After a short dance the music stops, the four dancers go and get a partner. In this way 2 becomes 4 becomes 8 becomes 16 becomes 32 becomes 64 becomes 128. Pretty soon everyone is dancing. Breaking the ice was never so easy! “Within about three minutes the entire room was, indeed, on the dancefloor.” Adelaide Advertiser.
