The honesty and dedication you have to your music and beliefs all pour out of you. The song writing, arrangements, band and of course your awesome vocal talent are all top notch! Congratulations on your accomplishment and the best of luck promoting it. There should be a large market for what you have here. And at very least you have a tangible legacy of your music and what you love to do. Again, congratulations Don!” – Trevor Hall

“Dear Donnie,
As soon as I got home last night after your amazing concert at the Heritage Hall I sat down and wrote some glowing comments on your website and your two Facebook sites as well as on my own personal site. You earned it! That’s the best I’ve ever seen you play. It’s a joy to me to have been your friend over these years and see your progression as a singer/songwriter/musician. The confidence and ability that you exuded on stage last night was phenomenal. You don’t ever have to be shy or overly humble about your music and ability as you were a little bit at the beginning of the evening. Believe you me, you are a talent! You filled the house with people and song, making a true connection with the audience, and you earned that standing ovation and encore you got at the end. There was a lot of love up there both on stage and in the audience. You have an honesty, sincerity, passion and true care for community. The mutual respect you have with your band members is evident and their considerable talents join with yours in making a strong musical statement. You are truly building a community one song at a time. I am so happy for you — both in your personal life (beautiful Diane is your perfect mate) and your professional life. Keep on loving, keep on playing. You are on your way up! Love, Barb” – Barb Heagy
