If you’ve been anywhere near Fairfax City this year, whether it’s Braddock Road near George Mason, or Old Lee Highway near Fairfax Circle, or vast areas in between — you’ve seen the Tuba Guy. And now The Post’s Freddy Kunkle has his story.
The Tuba Guy is Jay Converse, a founding member of the infamous University of Virginia Pep Band, and he marches around the Fairfax area playing the tuba, with the air blasts spinning a pink propeller. He’s 55, married with three kids, a computer whiz — a classic Northern Virginian, right?
He does a little “Sound of Music,” a little “Yellow Submarine,” even a very little “Free Bird.” He’s not a protester, like some other folks who wander our realm in unusual ways. He’s just hyper, and is apparently a very funny guy. Read more about him in Freddy’s fine piece here.
