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.

Jack Garton’s Demon Squadron is Jack at the helm of deep grooves and mad ideas in the style he pioneered with Maria in the Shower between 2004-2014. The Demon Squadron is a band of howling blues-dub sorcerers. It’s backbone is a trio of Amrit Basi on drum set, Michael Alleyne on bass and Jack on accordion, trumpet and voice, welcoming frequent collaborators on saxophone, trombone, organ and backup vocals.

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.
