Boots Graham Since 2011 Boots Graham has been delivering dynamic live performances across Canada with the help of his band Boots & The Hoots. Upbeat roots of Country Music with the cowboy lifestyle of the west with plenty of original wit and grit. With their brand new 4th album "Buck or Two Buckaroo" gaining critical acclaim, Country Music People Magazine called it "Immediately likeable" and went on to say 'there's more to Boots & The Hoots than tales of honky tonkin or. knockin' them back".



Jay Gavin From his early life as the son of a PEI fisherman, growing up surrounded by pickers & singers, to his years touring North America in punk & metal bands, Jay Gavin has come full circle and returned to his roots in country, folk & bluegrass. With a string of singles, two EPs and an album under his belt, Jay is well known for his natural authenticity, his often-humorous, twangy, foot-stompin’ songs and his rollicking, good timin’ live shows.



Jeff Bonner a musical entrepreneur and chippy defenceman has been entertaining crowds for over 20 years with Tractorgrease. After owning the popular music venue Tractorgrease Cafe and hosting years of Open Mics and Jams it's time to share his stories and songs. Performing and releasing albums under the name The Tractorgrease Folk his style is like Cash, Prine and Stompin Tom rolled up with some BC Bud. Story tellin' tunes about jammin', love gone wrong, colourful characters, it's what the folk is all about!

Songwriters Unite!!! is a show where songsmiths share the stage, stories and song. It was an institution at the popular music venue Tractorgrease Cafe owned by musician/performer Jeff Bonner. Now it's hittin the road with Jay Gavin and Boots Graham. Often compared to songwriter circles this show called Songwriters Unite!!! is more about entertainment and interactions with the crowd.
