Hailing from Toronto this rock trio has had its ups and downs during the breadth of its 14 years together. Named after lead singer and guitarist Danko Jones and also comprised of JC on bass and Dan Cornelius on drums, they had to struggle in the beginning to get any recognition in their home country despite constantly touring. They did gain a large following in Europe. Late in the 90s they gained some recognition due to the popularity of their single "Bounce" and earned their first Juno nomination in 2000.
In 2003 they experienced the peak of their popularity so far with the release of their album We Sweat Blood and their huge hit "Lovercall". Oddly enough, despite this success they were dropped by their label.
Having released five albums over the course of their career, Danko Jones has always played that pedal to the metal type of rock music. The last album they released was Below the Belt; it was released just this May.
Over the course of the past 14 years the band has toured with or opened for The Rolling Stones, Our Lady Peace, Sepultura, Nickelback, Motorhead, Guns 'N Roses, and Flogging Molly. The band has a well-earned reputation of putting on an energy-filled and raw live show.
