“The Donefors took the stage (after an opening act) shortly after 11 pm and didn’t disappoint, playing a variety of music from their first album (How to Have Sex with Canadians), their cheekily titled new release Award Winning Album, and other tunes. The space was packed, there was a party vibe and, though there was room to squish in a few more people, it might not have been comfortable to do so. So – what made this show such a hit with the crowd, and why was it so full? A few things come to mind. First, the music is top-notch (in my opinion, but also according to The Globe and Mail, which gave the new album three stars out of four). The musicians are approachable and have a great stage presence. They make good use of social media, and, given the title of their new CD, they clearly have a good sense of humour. In other words, they seem to be doing a lot of things right. That said, the venue was small; how would they have done in a larger room?”
