Rojas, a superb player who managed to do things that probably shouldn't be allowed on tuba... his sound was a dominant force. Amplified onstage, it was a huge, meaty sound that anchored the group, capable of laconic melodic counterpoint but also surprising swing, as he walked like a double-bass at a surprising clip during one of the solo sections. He also soloed with surprising dexterity and fluidity. The tuba will never be the same again.

...] the greatest performance of the evening, was by a horn quintet fronted by much-sought-after tuba player Marcus Rojas, whose rendition of Mozart's Quintet for Horn and Strings k.407 in E minor literally left me with tears streaming down my hayseed, country-boy cheeks. Then, Rojas proceeded to play a solo Tuba piece that he wrote for a child named Joshua who died of pediatric AIDS. The most gripping, stirring, and powerfully emotional live solo Tuba performance I have ever witnessed. This guy was unbelievable.

... Marcus Rojas, is simply astounding. He plays the bass role for the most part, and holds together really energetic grooves for long (15 + minute) tunes. He is also a moving soloist. After the gig I asked him how he keeps playing for so long and his answer was, "aw man, you just gotta go with the music."

Rojas is both the lynchpin and launch pad of this music. His tuba is muscular, percussive, melodic, spacious and stunning.

MarcusRojas is a spectacular tubaist, from dancing lines with a beautiful tone to the breathy sounds of mysterious, chattering creatures.
