This may be the world's best all-female rock band! Headlining the show, direct from their sold-out Australian tour will be Atlantic recording artists The Donnas!
According to Steve Huey, writing for MTV, "The Donnas won a cult following and considerable media attention in the late '90s after scoring a record deal right out of high school. Early on, they were described as 'The Ramones meet the Runaways.' Their bratty high school delinquent songs concerned themselves mostly with boys, booze, drugs, and hated classmates. As the band grew up and polished their technical abilities, their music evolved into a distinctly female take on cock-rock metal, drawing more from AC/DC, Kiss andMotley Crue".
The band was formed in May of 1993, when the four members (all born in 1979) were still in the eighth grade together in Palo Alto, California. They entered a junior-high battle of the bands just one month after forming the band. During high school, they practiced virtually every afternoon, and soon moved into riot girl territory. Later, the girls created Ramones alter egos and started calling themselves 'The Donnas'. For a time, vocalist Brett Anderson, guitarist Allison Robertson, bassist Maya Ford, and drummer Torry Castellano called themselves Donna A., Donna R., Donna F., and Donna C.
In 1997, The Donnas recorded their self-titled debut album. Following its release, the four took off from their senior year of high school to tour Japan. After graduation, they postponed college and recorded a second album, which was released in early 1998. The Donnas quickly became underground punk favorites, gathering attention from MTV as well as the mainstream media.
The group's third album, Get Skintight, appeared in 1999. Spend the Night arrived in 2002 and broke into the top of the charts. It also earned them their biggest radio hit to-date, "Take It Off".
The Donnas' appearance at Galt Airport on August 9th comes on the heels of the group's whirlwind tour of Australia, which included sold-out performances in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sidney and Perth. The Donnas are arguably the hottest, most successful all-female rock & roll band in the world today. Their show here in the Woodstock area is not to be missed. This will be one to remember!
