About Don Danger Jon

Don Danger Jon is a former intercontinental merchant adventurer and Eastern European art book dealer who tumbled down into the beige hades of office work in his native Canada. A twist or two of fate and he is now rising as a music promoter, lyricist, graphic novel author and occasional onstage Blues hypeman for the band he manages “Swamp Music Players”. Formative years in the austere rural enclave of Neebing County gave a young Don Jon a thirst for the world beyond his snowbound confines. With a diet of old Chess records and TV crackling with old American movies by Elwy Yost his only respite. Sleepy Vancouver Island is his home now where he works on promoting deserving artists locally and internationally.From the Eastern bloc to the Victoria open jam down the block Don Jon has seen a few adventures but not as many as enjoyable as the potential of music!
