Since Whiskey Jack's inception 45 years ago, their fans have been showering them with accolades celebrating their songs and stories. But the one constant that has fueled their success is what brings the crowds to their feet each night - a polished show exuding charm, ease and playfulness, qualities welcomed in this post Covid world.
Duncan Fremlin, founder of the band (and now, author), along with his consort, multiple Juno Award nominee
Douglas John Cameron, learned their trade first hand from their years performing on National Television (CBC and Kid's TV). Then there were the larger-than-life personalities they performed with along the way - Tommy Hunter,
Gordon Lightfoot, Gordie Tapp, Mac Wiseman and Stompin' Tom Connors. This was their class room. What
remains is a show that is (as one fan noted online after one of their shows) "simply fantastic - the music and
stories of Vinyl Cafe meet the quirky humour of Red Green".
