I think it may be. I had a deep Spike Jones period in 1992 (I was playing a show of his music that summer). I watched lots of the available videos and such, and I do seem to recall Tommy Pederson being one of the trombone players, although the Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spike_Jones) does not list Pederson, but dos list Frank Rehak among others…and we all know that Wikipedia is always 100% correct, right?

George Rock was the trumpet player for much of the run of the City Slickers, and he was an amazing combination of virtuoso and hilarious.

I need to go find those videos.
