Donnie played lead guitar for the LA rock band "City Lights" in the late 1970's/early 1980's, writing songs for the group's single and EP. Donnie ventured out on his own and released the single "I Love My Cat's Meow/Falling In Love" in March 1983, acting as musician/writer/producer/promo-man.

"Cat's Meow" hit #1 on LA's KXLU & KCLU, and then entered KROQ's "Rodney on the Roq's" Top 10 in April, moving to #1 for all of May/June. At the time, KROQ (FM 106.7) was the #1 AOR station in LA and was regarded as the new music trend-setter across the US. We re-released these songs (along with nine other tracks) in 2006 so people could get a taste of Donnie's music.

More recently, Donnie hooked up with the Seattle-based "Indigo Soul", where he played lead guitar for their "More Punch than Punch Line" CD. This led to a renewed interest in recording, and Donnie started writing and laying down tracks for a new collection of rock instrumentals - releasing them on an album titled "Freedom".

You gave a song of mine 5 stars (Haunted Melody) and I appreciate you taking the time to do that. Comments from fellow Broadjammers are always useful, insightful, and welcomed. Best to you! -Kevin

Hi Donnie, It looks like we've been selected for a listing with Mike Davenport. I was wondering if he has provided any information about when he will be sending out the exclusive contract we are to peruse?
