Well ALRIGHT! We are now looking forward to our second leg of summer dates. We will once again be playing our second home base Kensington Market, Toronto at our monthly residency at the Trinity Commons.
Three more festivals coming up. All great spots.
- Once again this year we will be playing BBGFest 2017; Black and Bluegrass Festival in Ottawa (anyone with floor space? Sleeping on a roof can be bright in the early morning, nevermind the birds).
- This years Lucky 13th Omemee Jams will be a kick ass time, only if Ralph is not going to be a dick.
- New to us this year we will be at (what we consider our first home) The Prince Edward County Country Jamboree in Cherry Valley, ON. Yee Haw!
The first half of our summer has been kick ass-bad ass fantastic… starting with second consecutive May 24 The Come Together Festival (Mark,you’re the man). We were the newbs this year at The Preston Springs Jamboree and it sure was a boot kicking, honky stomping time even if the bugs were in our eyes, mouths, ears and beers! Thanks for the free beers Waterloo Brewery at the Bowmanville Ribs And Brews Festival, it was a finger lick’in good time! We rode our flag waving hay wagon celebrating our patriotism in Wellington for Canada Day and the crowd was like a river of Red and White, Roll’in in our sweet baby’s arms!
Thank you everyone , so far so good.
We had a great time last year and accomplished most of our goals including The East Bound and Down Tour, awesome festivals, residency at the Dakota and constant gigging with great people from all over the planet.
We are welcoming the addition of a stand up bass to the line up this year to add more blue grass feel to the sound while also keeping our rockers electric.
Help us make this year the year of the Gunslinger and also the year of kick-assedness
This year we had tremendous success playing further and further from our home base. We saw a residences at The Dakota Tavern in Toronto playing 5 times in March. We official played our first east coast tour and play major festivals such as The Come Together Festival and The Black and Blue-Grass Festival in Ottawa.
This October we wine our busy year by playing 2 Shows at our favorite bars in The Kensington Market. First at Graffiti’s on the 22nd and then The Trinity Commons on the 30th of the Halloween weekend. In between those shows we are happy to play The Rivoli for the first time Tuesday Oct 25.
Once again we will be playing and headlining The Annual Piss Up at the Moustache Club in Oshawa Friday, Dec 23rd. But before we get into the holiday spirit we will be doing 2 parades in Prince Edward County. The first will be at Picton at 1pm Sunday Nov 27 and the other will be at Wellington 10:30am on Saturday Dec.3rd
This summer of 2016, we are hitting the road running. GT and the Gunslingers are on tour and ready to prove that we are a hard working, ass kicking, boot stumping touring band. The tour begins after a couple of send off gigs near our home-base of Durham Region and also of “The County” (Prince Edward County…of course). June 30 we’ll play a free show at Grass Park in Brooklin ON, just north of Whitby ON. On Canada, July 1st, we will be playing 3 events in “The County”, starting off at 10:30am in Wellington On The Lake for their traditional Canada parade, followed by a Downtown Picton free outdoor show at 3pm and ending up at Coach’s Pub and Grill House for a 2 set show starting at 8 pm .
The first stop on our East Coast tour begins July 2nd in Montreal and ends up in Saint John NB on July 9th. Please arrive early as these show will sell out quickly and as always, it’s first come first serve. We are looking forward to seeing you on the road this summer.

We are super excited to announce that we have been added to the best grass roots music festival in Ontario this May 20-22 long weekend.
Every long weekend for since I can remember The Come Together Music Festival has been going strong at the Frontier Ghost Town located in Durham ON (the town not region).
The kindest festival filled with music, dancing, camping and a f’in saloon in the middle of an old country setting.
Rituals include a lighting of a fire that can challenge The Burning Man Festival, super jams, funky times and a gathering of VW vans and partying to the witching hour and beyond.
As always earlybird gets the deal.
