Smokin' Neo-Swing band! Check out their theme song, "Big Tubba Mista". Funky
breaks, great horn section - a real riot! – www.swingdancemusic.com
Smooth rhythms, a blast of solid horns, solid drum lines and great bass and
guitar features blend with John’s liquid vocals to create a cocktail that’s part
swing, part rock, and part pure bliss. – Sparechange Magazine
The band is not content to sit back and give note-for-note renderings of classics, even though the style
sometimes requires it. Whether ripping through classics like “In the Mood” or raunchier numbers like
“My Baby’s Puddin,” Big Tubba Mista seems more interested in giving the music an edge and
keeping it lively. – Mode Magazine
