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 on CBC TV’s Tommy Hunter Show. Watching the Whiskey Jack segment (The Ol’ Black Porch) every Friday night, the 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 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 and Songs of Stompin’ Tom.
