The Boomers are a Canadian rock band from Ontario. Also known as The Boomers YYZ. Although their first album What We Do was not initially a commercial success in Canada, it became a cult hit in Germany, leading to a tour in 1991. This success prompted the band to record The Art of Living; the single "You Gotta Know" was a hit in Canada.[1]
