Los Angeles Times:


A tuba player at a backyard party

Two more tubas have been stolen from an area high school, extending a rash of thefts of the expensive instruments at Southern California campuses in recent months that instructors say is likely related to the popularity of Mexican banda music

With the surge in banda’s popularity, tuba players have become sought-after and are paid more than -– sometimes even double -– what other banda musicians earn.

    And I know where all these tubas end up. In the band down the street. One day, or rather one night, they tend to practice at night until 2 AM, my windows will blow out.

      They end up down the street from me… Banda Nashville, a whole bunch of little booking offices and banda recording studios, with the guys practicing out front.
