Playing venues and festivals from Vancouver to Ottawa, along with regular rotation on CKUA, CFCR and CBC (and charting on numerous other community radio stations across Canada, Great Britain and Eastern Europe), The Whiskey Jerks’ sound is rife with originality, sweet vocal blends, and a distinct whiskey-soaked sensibility. 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. The Whiskey Jerks create their own distinct niche, blending klezmer, rock, country-blues, gypsy-folk and jazz with clever lyrics, stories, and an honest prairie sound. They now have two full-length albums under their belt for your listening pleasure: Neat (2014) and Baba Was A Bootlegger (2019).
