Entertainment is what we are all about! We salute those who support live music.
Whiskey Jack Presents Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom returns to the Fergus Grand Theatre on April 7, 2023 to begin their "10th anniversary tour". Fans had to be turned away at the door the night of their first appearance, almost 6 years ago to the day! This show, recently described as a cross between Red Green and Vinyl Cafe, is so Canadian it hurts. The band's musical ride with Tom began in 1990 and included national tours, albums, TV appearances and many all night sessions filled with chess, songs and beer. You'll hear all about it at this show.
Renovations at this theatre are completed.
London has always been a very important stop for Whiskey Jack, starting with our first Firehall appearance in 1978. We're continuing the tradition and are honoured by the invitation to play at this great hall...joining us this time is 2x Juno nominated Douglas John Cameron, Tom's long time fiddler, from PEI, Billy MacInnis and on bass, James McEleney
This is a Mother's Day show so of course, it has to be special! The afternoon begins at 2:00 PM with Whiskey's Jack's kid's show. On the set list is Douglas' Juno nominated kid's song "Ants In Your Pants". The show will feature the touring band, our first Toronto appearance in 4 years. Special guests have been invited to join the festivities. Treat Mom, bring the kids (free) and we'll entertain them.

For 4 decades, Whiskey Jack has been performing their unique brand of Canadian country music coast to coast. In the 1980's, they were featured weekly on CBC TV's Tommy Hunter Show. Watching the Whiskey Jack segment (The Ol' Back Porch) every Friday night, a retired Stompin' Tom Connors would become an avid Whiskey Jack fan, enjoying the humour and the amazing musicianship, along with 2 million of his fellow Canadians. When Stompin' Tom resumed his career after 13 years away, he called Whiskey Jack and invited them to join him in the studio to record his acclaimed album, "Dr. Stompin' Tom... Eh?". These two Canadian musical institutions would continue to perform and record often together until Tom's death in 2014. Those years with Stompin' Tom were the seeds that blossomed into the show they tour with today, Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom.
