The brothers Good, Bruce, Brian and Larry are Canadian music legends and are still going five decades into their musical journey. Twins Brian and Bruce started out with James Ackroyd to form James and The Good Brothers in the late sixties. The Columbia Records recording act toured North America, including a concert in Toronto Canada opening for Grand Funk Railroad. The twins Brian and Bruce returned to Canada and brought younger brother Larry and his banjo in the fold and started developing the sound that still defines them to this day. The lineup of guitar, autoharp and banjo is at the core the sound that everyone in the Canadian music scene indentifies as “The Good Brothers Sound”.

With a history like that who better to headline the newly formed Country Music Association of Ontario’s first annual emerging artist showcase at the 2011 Canadian Country Music Association. Bruce Good, an active board member of the CMAO has recruited his brothers Brian and Larry and an extension of the Good Family in the form of country alternative band The Sadies The family tradition continues with Bruce Good’s sons Travis and Dallas Good spearheading the band.
