The DoneFors | Canadian Independent Band | Lush Life Below the Poverty Line | Award Winning Album | How to have sex with Canadians


Once upon a September a wee humble band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada taught people from near and far about “How to have sex with Canadians”… in canoes, pine trees, polar bear caves, and other tricky places.

New Download

In august we offered up “The Last Thing You Do” as a free download for the masses. This month head over to for a free download of “The Narrator” (from the debut album How to have sex with Canadians). This is one of the singles off our album, and we think you’ll like it lots and lots. Enjoy!

Cameron House Residency… Until Next Time

The DoneFors enjoyed a lovely run at The Cameron House in August. We played every Tuesday night from 6pm to 8pm to enthusiastic crowds. Thanks to everyone who made it out. Thanks to the staff as well, who kept the crowds well-watered. A big smooch to Brian Kobayakawa (bass) and Phil Skladowski (baritone sax) who both sat in on various nights. You guys were awesome. We hope to return again soon to The Cameron House for another run. Stay tuned.
