All the King's Tubas
After spending a number of years performing for Paramount's King's Island and the Cincinnati Zoo Festival of Lights, and then taking a two year sabbatical for educational purposes, All The King's Tubas are back in business. This quartet is comprised of Dan Bentley and Brian Cooke, euphoniums and Tim Olt and TJ Ricer, tubas. Dan Bentley is currently a member of the Wright Patterson Air Force Band of Flight, Brian Cooke is an extremely active freelance musician in Dayton, Ohio, TJ Ricer is pursuing a master's degree in tuba performance at the University of Tennessee, and Tim Olt is the Visiting Assistant Professor of Tuba/Euphonium at Bowling Green State University. The ensemble has performed in a great variety of venues from amusement parks to chapels to Indian restaurants. The tune heard here, Jingle Bells, was arranged for the group by Tim Olt, and is available through the Tuba-Euphonium Press. The chart was also reviewed in the ITEA Journal Volume 32 Number 1 Fall 2004 by Phillip C. Black from Wichita State University. All the King's Tubas can be contacted at TubaMan246@aol.com.
