Rich Aucoin has never been one to do things normally. You know the stories by now: How he toured across Canada on a bike — confirming the next night’s show from the green room of the venue he was currently sound-checking in. On that bike tour, he ran a half-marathon in every city, raised money, donated every cent to Leukemia research. On the next tour, he ran half-marathons for Heart And Stroke while at the same time recording 2011’s We’re All Dying To Live, featuring over 500 players. And his first EP, Personal Publication, syncs up perfectly with How The Grinch Stole Christmas and 2014’s Ephemeral with The Little Prince. How every show features a custom video opening and a party under a parachute and at the end of that show, he puts his phone number up and you texted him.
Well, Rich saved all those numbers in his rolodex (totalling almost 16,000 friends and strangers), so if you’ve received a text from Rich today, or saw a poster around town, or on social media, asking Rich to text you, then you’ve likely already heard the news that there’s a new EP coming out on March 16. It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that when Aucoin’s computer was stolen on a surf trip in Costa Rica in 2016, along with it went most of the recordings for the new EP. Gone. All but one completely finished new song which he had sent to his manager. That song was to be the last song of the new EP. And that record? He didn’t just start over — he made his best work ever: spanning through electro-jungle variations to joyous and catchy orchestral pop.

Good Enough features a versatile group of musicians with eclectic tastes in music. They formed on a whim with two week’s notice in December 2013 when the booker at The Hoxton needed an awesome cover band for an ad agency gig. In rehearsals they threw together a 40-song repertoire practicing at breakneck speed until a song sounded “good enough.” Since then they’ve logged almost 500 hours of stage time and thrill audiences at their twice monthly gigs at the Gladstone Hotel and Junction City Music Hall. The crowds include a slew of regulars, the Good Heads, who, enamoured with the thrill of being onstage, have become addicted to great times with Good Enough.
The past year has been epic for the band which now features two line-ups and has added Motown Karaoke to the repertoire. This summer they’ve played an array of stages including Ontario Place and Burl’s Creek for the inaugural Big Feastival. Their out of town shows at Heartwood Concert Hall in Owen Sound are always sold out days in advance and the band is thrilled to be playing twice a month at the epic new Rec Room Roundhouse – a massive game complex at the base of the CN Tower.
Last fall the Good Enough was the house band for Mongrel Media’s funhouse at the Toronto International Film Festival. Singers included Oscar-winning director Atom Egoyan, the iconic Mary Margaret O’Hara and Cityline’s Tracy Moore. During their five-night residency, with three other gigs thrown in that week, the band clocked over 40 hours on stage and were immediately invited back for TIFF2017! The previous summer they played the Dundas West Fest and tore up the stage at Yonge-Dundas Square for an epic three-hour set where lucky members of the crowd were pulled on stage to sing with the band. The band has rocked corporate conventions at the Sheraton Centre, Toronto Congress Center, summer office parties, team-building events for associates of Boston Consulting and FreshBooks plus weddings and private parties at the Four Seasons Yorkville.
