The Donkeys

We would love to be able to say that the Donkeys are simply four California beach bums who love to surf, drink cheap beer and jam as the sun sets over the Pacific. The long legacy of music hailing from California – from Bakersfield to the Beach Boys, Sweetheart of the Rodeo through Slanted and Enchanted – has shaped our sense that everything and everyone "out west" is laid back, comfortable and cool.

New Live Tracks From THE DONKEYS

A nice collection of live tracks from THE DONKEYS is now available for download at the website Luxury Wafers. The site is offering seven songs recorded at Chessvolt studios, including the previously unreleased “Hot Sauce” and “New Blue Stockings.” From the fine folks at Luxury Wafers: “The fat collection of live tracks The Donkeys recorded in the studio unbelievably emit the sunshine of an afternoon outdoor concert. When I listen, my skin softens, it’s warm and bright, there’s no place I have to hurry off to, and perfection is in the moment.”

Listen to the songs and see a photo album from the recording session HERE.

THE DONKEYS Plot Mega-Summer Tour, Share Dates With Magnolia Electric Co.

The music of THE DONKEYS should own your summer activities. It begs you to drink green-bottled beer by it, to break out the Slip-n-Slide, to cut those slacks into short-shorts. Now, the men of The Donkeys are taking their message across the country this summer, sharing a load of dates with fellow neu-classic-rockers Magnolia Electric Co. This should be nothing short of radtastic. Check out all the dates HERE.

BISHOP ALLEN And THE DONKEYS To Play Schuba’s Tomorrow Never Knows Festival in Chicago

BISHOP ALLEN and THE DONKEYS will share the stage on Sunday, January 18 as part of the grand finale of Schuba’s Tomorrow Never Knows Festival in Chicago. Tickets for the show are available HERE. The five-day festival will also feature artists like Department of Eagles, Cursive and Mile Benjamin Anthony Robinson.

As part of the Windy City visit, The Donkeys will also play an in-store performance at Chicago’s Reckless Records at 3 p.m. on the day of the show. It will no doubt bring some much needed West Coast warmth to the dead of winter.

Meanwhile, both Bishop Allen and The Donkeys will be passing through cities around the United States and Canada.

THE DONKEYS Publish Awesome Tour Diary

THE DONKEYS worked recently with San Diego organization Sezio. They outfitted the band with disposable cameras and made them write stories about their most recent adventures on tour. Their pictures and insight are extremely great examples of why THE DONKEYS are such a great bunch of people. We love the giant dream catcher!
