Don Byron and Michael Occhipinti

Don Byron first came to Toronto in 1997 as a featured guest with NOJO, and he's been a regular part of NOJO and Michael Occhipinti projects ever since.  Don appears on two of NOJO's albums, Michael Occhipinti's Creation Dream: The Songs of Bruce Cockburn, and The Sicilian Project's Muorica.  Don hadn't been to Toronto since before the pandemic, and it was a blast to play four nights at the Rex, along with bassist Rich Brown and drummer Jinu Isac.  After the gigs fans were sharing their phone videos, and the energy and joy deserves to be shared so here it is!
