About Strange Potatoes

John Eaton, Derek McLean and John Miller have been playing around South Georgian Bay for 20 years!  Energized by their friendship and the delight of smashing the traditional head on with the outrageous, these three seasoned “front-men” from other local bands,  come together with acoustic instruments in hand for an experience that is truly unique.  They embrace a wide variety of musical styles and origins and take the stage to wrap them all up in one big flannel blanket of fun.
