Erin Davis from CHFI fame was recently interviewed on a podcast called Toronto Mike'd. It was an all encompassing conversation and in a round-about way, she made mention of Whiskey Jack. Her husband Rob Whitehead played bass for us for many years. She also spoke glowingly of Arlene Zock, our brilliant vocalist who died in 2011. I'm very pleased to announce that Arlene's fans can now, for the first time, listen to her on Spotify, Apple Music and all the other streaming platforms. I'm sorry it took so long to…Read more
Viewing: Stompin' Tom Show - View all posts
As many of our fans know, we toured with our show in Northern Ontario in May, 2019. At the time, we jokingly referred to these shows as Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom On Steroids. The steroid part was the addition of Cindy Church, Russell deCarle and The Good Brothers to our stage.
At a preproduction meeting with all of the participants earlier that year, I gave Bruce and Brian Good a copy of my book, My Good Times With Stompin' Tom. One chapter in that book inspired the twins to write a song. It's…Read more

When we're not on tour with Whiskey Jack performing Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom Show across the country, Duncan and Douglas are making friends and music as a duo. They call themselves Doogie and Dun. Sometimes, with too much time on their hands, things get out of hand. This is what happens.
Think of this as a Fantasy League for Canadian music fans..."What would happen if?"
In this case, what would have happened if Leonard Cohen got fed up with trying to write the lyrics for his little ditty…Read more
As Whiskey Jack begins its seventh touring season, our quest for world domination continues. Increasing our footprint... our profile - that's what it's all about.

We have entered into a business relationship with what we think is the hottest media outlet in the GTA and beyond, a podcast called Toronto Mike'd. There is even hope that this is a game changer for our show.
Here's why it's so important. In our 40+ year history, Whiskey Jack has…Read more

There are two moments in our shows when the crowd loses control of their senses. We live for these moments. It happens at every show!
The first is when our official Whiskey Jack dancer, Douglas John Cameron begins to floss. The reaction from the crowd is immediate and loud. Smiles and laughter ensue. Why does Douglas John floss? Like the audience, he can't help himself. His arms spontaneously begin to swing and there's no stopping them. This phenomena has been studied by scientists around the world…Read more
Make no bones about it. If you're looking for a show that will appeal to your audience born before 1979, call Duncan and ask about available dates for "Stories & Songs of Stompin' Tom"! John Miller from Stratford Summer Music calls it "one of the most entertaining all Canadian shows on the circuit". It features Whiskey Jack, Stompin' Tom's touring band and stars of The Tommy Hunter Show (CBC-TV). Sure, some youngsters are often spotted in the audience, but most of them are pushing wheel chairs. They…Read more
