Yes, a sousaphone.  An instrument so grand in its proportions that the player of said instrument had to adjust the christmas light strings hanging above the stage.

I thought this night was just (pff ‘just’) going to be going out for drinks with a wonderful lady, but then I show up and it’s live Heavyweights Brass Band… and it’s really good.

Please listen to that bass line and remember that he plays that instrument with his mouth the way that bass-players play their guitar with their fingers.  Wow.
