Career Highlight: We played at a festival in Switzerland, there was a huge traffic jam stopping the brass section getting to the festival stage in time for the show. We were eventually ferried to the mountain top by helicopter. As we got out of the helicopter, a phalanx of photographers who had absolutely no idea who we were, but we were carrying instrument cases, so they took a million photos anyway as we were ushered to the limo that drop us the two hundred yards to the stage. I can’t remember what the show as life. I’d love a few prints of the photos.
