Anamateur's love for dixieland and his friendship with Portuguese trombonist Eduardo Lála were responsible for him being a guest in 2008 (between May and July) of "On Dixie", a band formed by Lála and other Lisbon dixieland lovers (Pedro Carvalho, Gil Gonçalves etc.). In the list of top gigs, is included the one in the legendary "Cabaret Maxime".
