The gift that keeps on giving...our July 2 show in Huntsville was one of the many highlights of our summer. Yesterday, Rob Saunders, the General Manager of the Huntsville Festival of the Arts sent these kind words...
"In addition to being a pleasure to present Whiskey Jack, they are the real deal onstage. Their show honours the music and legend of Stompin' Tom but this is by no means a tribute act. What they are, is a group of seasoned pros, excellent musicians all, who play music they love and respect. The audience felt that vibe from the first song and as a presenter that's all you can ask for!"
This photo was taken at that show as Jen Cook and Duncan Fremlin were challenging the all Canadian audience to yell out the provincial capitals in Tom's classic song, Name The Capitals.
Even more testimonials arrived:
Our show in Bancroft this summer was special for many reasons. Besides the perfectly cooked venison they served us at dinner, we were greeted by the perfect hostess, Heather Brough. She operates a first class theatre in this town with a staff devoted to the cause of live music and theatre. It's called the Bancroft Village Playhouse and Heather wrote:
"This summer, Whiskey Jack delighted and entertained our audience with their show at The Bancroft Village Playhouse! The Stories and Songs of Stompin’ Tom was presented in such an amazing format with tales for all and incredible music by a group of masters! Not to be missed!"
After our show at the Gravenhurst Opera House in June, we also received this fantastic message from their Manager, Krista Storey:
‘The Whiskey Jack show was a great success at our theatre. Everyone loved the fun stories about Stompin’ Tom, his connection to our hometown and many others... but the incredible musicianship on the stage was the highlight of the night. They are all such talented musicians who engaged the audience from beginning to end. A great show for the whole family!’
