Designed as a one-off complementary showcase to JunoFest, demand has made DNTJ an annual event. The first show was held in 2005, coinciding with the first Juno Awards to be held in Winnipeg. A capacity crowd enjoyed an impromptu set by Joey Gregorash, the first solo Juno winner from Manitoba, and marked a return to the stage for Jaylene Johnson, performing for the first time in over a year after a near-fatal automobile accident.
