The best way to have a tuba solo and capture peoples attention is by having 
them in front of the band with percussion only. At a Jazz Convention in Aust. 
I had a washboard band (with Bill H.). 26 washboards including a bass, about 
6 feet tall, and Pip Avent (ex LSO) played the William Tell overture to a 
standing ovation. There were no other instruments. We did the 1812 overture 
and got the comment that "I didn't know jazz musicians could play classical 
music also"
