Mike Marois

I'm a nephew of Frank and Freddie Assunto and a grandson of Papa Jac Assunto. I've performed with Papa Jac at several venues in California and Louisiana. I Started my professional music career at the age of thirteen, and have performed extensively in the United States and did a three-month gig in Japan. I've also performed for such organizations as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Cypress Gardens, Sea World, Church Street Station, Chicago Cubs Band, Banjo Buddies, and the Hot Frogs Jumping Jazz Band. Brought up submerged in the music of the Original Dukes my tuba playing style has been influenced by Rich Matteson, Dave Gannett, and Harvey Phillips.
