Jack Garton and the Demon Squadron with Double Fuzz and L’Omelette
Raucous showman Jack Garton hit the Eddy stage for a night of rhythm-forward rockabilly tunes.
Coming from Galiano Island in the Salish sea, Jack Garton’s pursuit of foot-stomping beautiful songs has taken him as far as Europe, Canada’s arctic, and the Southern USA, playing his unique combination of trumpet and accordion. Parts writer, composer, player and showman, Jack’s show is a roller-coaster tour through roots music in the folk and blues traditions. Songs full of passion, curiosity and life are set to rhythm and let loose in the hands of his dynamic touring band the Demon Squadron.
Since releasing their first full-length album together in summer 2016, the band has been busy steadily playing Western Canadian festivals, clubs, halls and house concerts. Their second album Love You Over Time, released in summer 2018, is seeing Jack Garton gaining fans as a young songwriter and performer to watch.
Calgary’s blues rock duo Double Fuzz have been constructing their amplified sound since 2012. With their dirty guitar riffs, menacing edgy vocals and punchy loud drum licks, Double Fuzz has people turning the volume to the max.
The recent release of their self titled debut album has received great review and Double Fuzz graced the cover of Beatroute in celebration of this release. The album was recorded with the talented Jesse Gander at The Hive Studio in Burnaby BC, who has recorded with Pack AD, The Black Mountain and other great bands.
