One such person is Pete Fountain, who can attest to the fact that playing traditional Dixieland music is a tough way to earn a living (he and Al Hirt once had to work as exterminators to pay the bills).
Fountain eventually met with some success as a featured performer on the Lawrence Welk show and continues to this day to play traditional Dixieland in his own theme restaurant in New Orleans.
Fountain obviously has a passion for the music, which is rendered as authentically as possible; he solos enthusiastically and confidently, never straying far from the style as if he's constantly afraid of offending one of his idols with a lackluster performance.
