About The Band

A few years ago at a New Year's party in North London, three friends were talking nonsense about music in the way one does at parties.

One of them, it transpired, played the bass. The second admitted to having once played guitar, and to still owning one. And the third owned no instrument at all except a superannuated violin, but had once been a chorister.

"Wouldn't it be fun if we started a band?" said one of the three. Each one of the three, nowadays, insists that they can't remember which one of them said it, but it wasn't them.

And start a band they did.

And it was fun.

And three years, fifty songs, two additional members, several parties, and a surprising amount of amusing stories later...it's still fun.

We are the Donutsh. Welcome to the fun.
