TubaJoe is right now in the studio with legendary drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, and a host of incredible players.



TUBAJOE is NYC Downtown meets Dub, Funky Grooves meet Rawk. Feel the Electric Tuba as it creates soul-shaking grooves amidst a thick and bluesey sonic vibe. The flavors of keys, drums and horns add the spice to this fashionable groove casserole.

Raised on jazz, trained in classical and branded by rock, TubaJoe (aka Joe Exley) is not your typical tubist. Bent on improvisation but rooted in the family business of rock (his sister is the bass player with Nashville Pussy) Joes band TUBA LOVE verges on the noisy, but spits out grooves that make riffing feel cool again. It's as if Miles Davis and Lita Ford had a tuba-wielding love child. Tuba Love makes it safe to get down without having to embrace your inner band geek.

TubaJoe is one of the busiest tuba players on the NYC scene, working with literally hundreds of bands in hundreds of the hippest venues. TubaJoe's foray as a solo artist was born out of Joe performing Last Poet style gigs with legendary groove-master drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, who Joe continues to collaborate with. Armed with some of the hippest, most vibrant, next generation jazz, funk, and rock musicians in the NYC/Brooklyn scene, TubaJoe's wows crowds and makes them dance! TubaJoe and his band Tuba Love are available for festivals and shows anywhere and can fit on almost any bill.
