Danko Jones played the Observatory North Park in San Diego, California on Sunday, February 10, 2019. The trio from Toronto was grateful for the chance to share an evening with true fans of rock and roll, who were not content to just sit on the couch and watch the Grammy’s.
In my musical journeys, I have encountered two types of people – those who love Danko Jones, and those who have never heard of Danko Jones. If you are a fan of straight up rock and roll in the Motorhead spirit, check out Danko Jones.
The band has been thrilling audiences with their energetic live performances and funny anecdotes for over 2 decades. Danko Jones plays guitar and sings, John Calabrese plays the bass, and Rich Knox has manned the drums for the past 6 years.
The show in the beautiful Observatory theater in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego was very interactive. Danko had several conversations with the crowd, discussing the merits of specific song requests, and encouraging those who had been dragged along to let themselves move and feel the spirit of rock and roll.
They will release their new album “A Rock Supreme” on April 26th, 2019. The song titles promise more fun songs to sing along to. A new single “Dance Dance Dance” is out now, as well as a fan-filmed video for “Burn In Hell”.
