This photo was taken in Branson Missouri where I was playing a series of country shows.
One day, on my day off, I was asked if I would join the Russian Academic Dixieland Jazz band.
I remember it was 10am on a very cold autumn morning but the music kept the audience clapping and dancing around.
The band consisted of Drums, Bass, Keyboard, 2 Trumpets, Trombone Saxophone and I played banjo.
They are a world class band and they come from Russia and travel all around the world to perform.
It would have to be one of the biggest highlights of my music career.
