Tuba Skinny - "I Got A Woman"

Here is some vintage Erika. She is no longer living in New Orleans.
But finally the mystery of her not being there has been solved.
Read the following. It is quoted from the band's site. tuba skinny.
I take this to mean she will be going with the band to Italy December 30 to Jan. 3 to the Umbria Jazz Festival in Orvieto, Italy. See their schedule on their tuba skinny site.

Where is Erika?

We've been getting this question a lot lately, and we figured we owe those inquiring an explanation. Erika has moved out of New Orleans, but she is still in the band. She will still be performing with Tuba Skinny at festivals and on tours, and occasionally in New Orleans too. She'll be playing with us in New Orleans in April. We miss her when she's not with us, but when we do get to play with her, it's a special treat. Thanks for your concern.
