Default Trombone trio

Does anyone happen to remember the names of any of the members of the trombone trio that played at SFOT in 1983?

No idea who they were, but did they play in a certain area or did they roam the park and play? Trying hard to remember if I've seen them or not. I do remember the SF marching bad in the mid-eighties, but I doubt that's who you're referring to.

I think they generally played at or near the front gate -- mostly ragtime, jazz, and the like.

There was a band that played at six flags a lot, it was a dixieland jazz quintet, called Razzmajazz... not a trombone trio, though.

They're still playing, a friend of mine got married in July, and they played the reception.

Razzmajazz must have come after the trombone trio, i.e., sometime after 1983.
