Notes: In 1963,  the drummer retired and Ray Trahan took over the position for the group.
  The band continues to host their own radio show every Saturday night on CFCO radio.
  In 1967, the band does seven consecutive Saturdays Nights doing a one hour radio show for CKNX in Wingham, followed by a show and dance. The band begins to rack up shows supporting major acts from Nashville and the popularity of the band is growing in their live show attendance.

 Pedal steel player Bob Lucier (Grande Pointe), moved to Toronto, and then learned to play the instrument, and within a year he had recorded an album with Nashville Dobro player Shot Jackson. Bob then went on the road with Bill Anderson (approx. one to one and a half years), then came back and joined The Myers Brothers and the Jubilaires for the year of 1967. He moved back to Toronto and joined the Tommy Hunter Show for roughly 20 years.
