  In 1973 they completed an eleven day tour with the Donna Fargo Show as back-up band for Jan Howard. Miss Howard was noted as saying “The Myers Bros. And the Jubilaires” were one of the best Canadian Country and Western groups she has had the pleasure of working with. It  is references such as this that keep the group in constant demand.

  1. I was in grade 8 when these songs were done & was very proud & bragged about my Uncle Oscar Demers. A young 14 yr. old Paul Franklin played steel guitar on these sessions…Rene
