Wednesday Night BAR NIGHT

About JR. GONE WILD:  Formed in Edmonton in 1983, the band’s one constant has been singer/songwriter Mike McDonald. Their then-novel practice of touring in a van on the young Trans-Canada Highway worked to build Jr. Gone Wild’s legend — McDonald speaks of days of drinking, fighting, being robbed, being sick and cold, all while playing in dives.

That touring helped to create songs that range from period pieces that nail coming of age in the ‘80s to subtle heartbreakers capturing fragments of the eternal human condition.

The band’s penchant for pedal steel and country-smoked moments set them apart from other bar bands of the day and elevated the songs from simple pop choruses and tongue-in-cheek perspectives into something meaningful and enduring.

About TOMMY GILHAM: Tommy Gilham was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama in a home filled with love and southern hospitality where gospel and country music filled the air.

Tommy was drawn to Nashville after he won a songwriter contest, and immediately received a publishing deal with Polygram. While there he had the opportunity to work with artists such as Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams Jr., Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marty Stewart and others. He was for a time a member of the Charlie Daniels band Saddletramp and cut his teeth performing nightly all over Nashville.

Tommy was a rising star in Nashville and then the distraction of a beautiful Canadian girl took him on a new wonderful journey. After marrying, they settled on her fifth generation family homestead on the Bruce Peninsula, with two Alabama dogs, Banjo and Mandolin.
