After having already sat down to chat with Danko earlier in the day, his on stage persona didn’t come as a surprise. Danko Jones has been at it for 17 long years. This is a hard working, blood, sweat, and tears kind of a band, and one that makes absolutely no bones about the level of success they’ve achieved at home here in Canada.
Danko knows where his core audience lies (Europe), and he was more than happy to share those feelings with Toronto on lookers Tuesday at the Molson Amphitheatre for the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. You have got to hand it to the guy, he’s a straight shooter, and Danko Jones is a rock and roll band through and through. Playing the side stage at a festival in your home city nearly 20 years into your career? Toronto doesn’t give this band the kind of respect it’s earned.
