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. Since day 1, Duncan Fremlin has been plying his trade as the singer/banjo player/leader of Whiskey Jack. Over the years, elite members of the Canadian music community have enjoyed time in the Whiskey Jack family.
Success followed in the 1980’s when the band was invited to host their own “Ol’ Back Porch” segment on the CBC TV’s Tommy Hunter Show. A few years later when Stompin’ Tom resumed his career, he called Duncan and invited his band 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 together until Tom’s death in 2014. Now Duncan is joined by two time Juno nominee Douglas John Cameron to carry the Whiskey Jack tradition into a post COVID world.
Douglas John gained fame and notoriety in 1985 with his song Mona With The Children (True North Records). He was also well known for his appearances on Ants in Your Pants (Treehouse TV). His theatrical and dynamic approach to performing, coupled with his talents on many instruments bring an endless supply of energy to this already dynamic band.
Whiskey Jack in 2023 continues to write, record and tour across the country. Their new self-produced album is now available on all platforms.
