The Myers Brothers

Ray Myers: Born Sept. 22, 1937
Roland Myers: Born August 2, 1940
    The Myers Brothers, Ray and Roland, started singing together at the ages of ten and seven respectively. They won a talent contest in their early teens and then made regular guest appearances on the Casey Clarke Jamboree for two years. They formed their own country group which played many engagements around their home town of Chatham, Ontario. They joined the Jubilaires in 1960. Many memorable appearances followed including several on the CKNX Barn Dance out of Wingham, Ontario.

The Jubilaires

Oscar Demers: Born Nov. 9, 1942
    Oscar started playing guitar at 13 years of age and has developed an unusual style of making a Spanish guitar sound like a steel guitar. Many people are puzzled at this steel sound until he shows them how it’s done. He is equally at home on bass and drums, and a fine vocalist as well.

Roland Lozon: Born Mar. 3, 1940
    Roland started in guitar at 12 years of age and Violin a year later. He joined with Oscar in 1956 to form the original Jubilaires. His favourite Violinist is Frank Rogers and he also likes hearing and playing Chet Atkins. He played piano on this record.

Ray Trahan: Born Dec. 12, 1943
    Ray started playing drums in High School. He joined the Jubilaires in 1963 and since then learned to do vocals and play rhythm guitar. Out of the five Ray is the only one who is sports minded, which varies from: Hockey, Baseball, Guitar, Cars, Golf etc.

(The album notes Ray as being the only “sports minded” member may be misleading, as others are also involved in sports.)
