One of Canada’s most awarded country music performers, Brian Sklar has built a reputation as a world-class entertainer in Canada, the United States and Europe. His credits include 28 albums, numerous chart singles, and over 250 syndicated television shows.

Live performance credits include multiple appearances at the world famous Calgary Stampede, telethons in virtually every province and state of the union, and headliner status at world-class events such as the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo, the Swiss National Exhibition, and the Canadian National Exhibition, plus guest appearances on the Grand Ol Opry and the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree.

Sklar’s latest television series, CTV’s Number One West, has won a total of six national awards for excellence. The show features Sklar and his Band, with a headline guest each week from the Grand Ol Opry, as well as appearances by notable Canadian country recording artists.

Sklar’s latest group, the TEX PISTOLS, is a throwback to the days of country superstars like Ray Price, Faron Young, Bob Wills and the Sons of the Pioneers. The band’s originals sound like Nashville 1965, and in some cases, Texas 1933. The group's trademarks are Nudie-style rhinestone suits and interaction with the audience the way entertainers used to in the Las Vegas of the 50s and 60s.
Brian Sklar and the Tex Pistols are an extremely entertaining trip back to the future; yesterday’s classic country played with today’s energy.
