Album Notes
The Whiskey Jerks came together when Gillian Snider, who no longer wanted to drink alone, felt it was time to expand upon her one woman accordiana show. After convincing the talented Anna Bekolay (violin), James Diakuw (clarinet), Nevin Buehler (upright bass), Peter Abonyi (guitar) and Kevin Buzinski (percussion) to join her on her misadventure, The Whiskey Jerks soon began to create their own distinct niche, blending klezmer, country-blues, gypsy-punk, rock and jazz with clever lyrics, stories, and an honest prairie sound.
Playing numerous venues and festivals in Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC (including the Saskatchewan International Jazz Festival, The Jasper Folk Music Festival, The Ness Creek Music Festival, The China Cloud in Vancouver, The Blue Chair in Edmonton, The Artful Dodger in Regina and Saskatoon’s Jazz Bassment), along with radio play on CBC, CKUA, CFBX and CFCR, The Whiskey Jerks’ sound is rife with originality, sweet vocal blends, and a distinct whiskey-soaked sensibility - they'll always keep you guessing...and dancing!
