Donna, along with her guitarist, Brandon Hoadley have been performing together for the past two years. Both Donna and Brandon have been in the music industry for approximately ten years perfecting their style over time. Prior to them meeting, both Donna and Brandon performed in separate bands however when their paths crossed and they began playing together it became evident how their experience and influences complimented each other.
To give you an idea of the high standard both Donna and Brandon can offer, they recently supported David Gray and the Beautiful South, toured Spain for six months during the Summer and are only back from the Cork Jazz Festival, this being their forth year being asked back to perform. In the past Brandon toured with BB King, Jerry Lee Lewis and Robbie Williams to name but a few.
Donna and Brandon’s genre of music is quite mixed. They tend to appeal to a very wide audience. They would probably be best described as a rock and roll band however it is difficult to define their music since there is such a variety including soul, blues, pop etc. Donna is a songwriter so naturally she sings her own songs however they also perform many covers, anything from Elvis, Elton John, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, to modern day music such as Amy Winehouse, The White Stripes etc.
