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. Set to release another album in Spring 2018, Jack Garton is gaining fans as a young songwriter and performer to watch.

The roots roller-coaster band Demon Squadron is the engine behind Jack Garton’s songs. Formed in 2013 and named after Garton’s grandfather’s special ops flight squadron in WWII, the band is a highly-trained crew of Vancouver’s most unique musical talent. From rockabilly to rocksteady, country to cajun, every show is roots music mayhem executed with classic showmanship and wry humour. While touring Western Canada, Washington State and Alaska, the Squadron has been honoured to serve on festival main stages, concert halls, theatres, clubs and cook-outs. It’s all in the line of duty for BC’s rambling servicemen and women as they continue to wage Garton’s campaigns of heavy honesty and devastating joy throughout the region.

 The Dark Wrangler aka Don Cassell and Dil Jopp of In Cahoots will be playing as well.
