The Seattle Seahawks will be hosting a free public tribute to the life of the Tuba Man, Ed McMichael, this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Qwest Field Event Center. Complete details are here, while Robert Jamieson of the Seattle P-I also has more on the event. I’m planning on being there.
Here’s a recap of Saturday, when musicians gathered to play outside McCaw Hall and at some of Tuba Man’s other former haunts on the Seattle Center campus. Photographer Rod Mar of the Seattle Times also has a moving tribute to someone he considered a friend.
