This picture is from around 1978 during my days in Atlanta, and is the first band I ever played with. The name of the band was "The Thompsons", that being the familial name of two of the members. I played mandolin at the time, not having taken up fiddle yet. The musicians are Bob Visentin (bass), Gayle Thompson (fiddle), and Jim Thompson (guitar). We were playing a lot of jazz, newgrass, and original material in those days.

Bob and Gayle currently play in a jazz band called The Owls.
