"Easy Street After Hours (An Evening of Ska with The Diablotones"

Hailing from Seaview, Rude Tuna is a more modern, youthful blend of punk rhythms with an entertaining horn section. Profanity
frequently pops up in the band’s off-handed lyrics.
Fans of Reel Big Fish, Catch 22 and Sublime will enjoy this seven-piece self-proclaimed “musical revolution.”

We released our Demo in January of 2009 which had 3 tracks on it (1. Big Bitch, 2. Just a Mess, 3. Anthem) and our first album will be out very soon



We are a 7-piece ska/punk band from around the Seattle area. We formed in the late summer of 2008 and after a few personnel changes in late November of 2008, we found the chemistry we were looking for. Several members knew each other from high school but everyone quickly became friends when we bagan making music together and we have been going strong ever since.

Our first major breakthrough was when we all went to the Ska Is Dead Tour at Studio 7 in Seattle. It was there that we met Timmy Profit (Lead singer and Bass in The Diablotones). He has been and continues to be a great help to us. He got us our first show opening for The Diablotones at Easy Street Records in the West Seattle Junction. We didn't really know what to expect but played a great set and everyone in the audience seemed to love our sound. The next day we found out that our show was the 2nd biggest show in Easy Street history and the 1st was Pearl Jam!

After that first show we have stayed busy playing many shows with bands such as Big D and the Kids Table, The Slackers, Chase Long Beach, The Diablotones, and Natalie Wouldn’t just to name a few.

We are always writing new material and it’s always new and different. Most likely due to the fact that we have a very eclectic list of influences that range from typical ska to classical and jazz. So keep on the look out for lots of shows because we tend to play any stage, anywhere.
