The Washboard Union
30X Award winners, three-time reigning CCMA Group/Duo of the Year and JUNO Breakthrough Group of the Year, The Washboard Union have defied classification and continue to be one of the most talked about bands in Country music. Led by step-brothers Aaron Grain & Chris Duncombe and their best friend David John Roberts, The Washboard Union share an innate love for the art of songwriting and storytelling that has resonated with audiences from North America to Europe. Certified Gold in Canada, the band has had seven Top 10 hits and numerous top 20 hits in Canada, and was the first country band to ever win the JUNO Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year; a multi-genre category. One of the busiest bands touring in Canada, The Washboard Union have played nearly every stage between Vancouver Island and Newfoundland, over to Europe and back, and have shared the stage with Old Dominion, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Dwight Yoakam, Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band, Thomas Rhett, Lonestar, and more.
This is a band that cares deeply about their fans, and anyone who has seen them live knows The Washboard Union engage with their audience at every opportunity. Known for their genuine nature, and sense of caring and responsibility, The Washboard Union have also donated their music and merchandise to countless other charitable events including Basic for Babies (BC), Gone Country Cancer Fundraiser (BC), Love of Children Charity Golf Classic (Alberta), Listowel Arena Fundraiser (Ontario), and more, proving their passion extends from the joy in their hearts into everything they do. To illustrate their impact on audiences, in 2018 the small town of La Glace, AB celebrated “Washboard Union Day”, with the school children dressing up like the band and performing their music, as the band performed a fundraising concert for the town’s new arena.
