Yes and yes.

Our UK band; Big Bear Stompers has two trumpets.... the band leader Dave 
Moorwood plays banjo and does most of the chat
We may have recorded another live CD at the recent Keswick Jazz 
Festival...... or to be precise we were a recorded and await the results 
with trepidation :-)

We have a couple of live recordings:  one when Jim Maihack guested with 
us on a UK tour in 2005  and "The Emperor Strikes Back recorded in 
2007.  There are also some Youtube tracks all can be found on 
The band at Keswick featured 4 musicians under the age of 40 and 5 who 
prefer not to say.
