To celebrate the jubilee we will play at the same place on 7 November and on 8 November we will give a big concert on the stage of Arnold Kats State Concert hall. We invited all the musicians who have ever played in our band«, — told the honored artist of Russia, artistic director of the Jazz Orchestra » Siberian Dixieland» Sergei Gershenovich.
