"A modern take of the hot swingin' jazz and sultry blues of the 1920s and 30s that will make you want to dance all night!" - Verdi Club
DONNAY’s music and voice can be heard on film and TV, YouTube and all major music outlets, Donnay & the Prohibition Mob Band just completed their 3rd CD together, a tribute to Louis Armstrong (released 2018 on Blujazz is “My Heart Belongs To Satchmo”.)
Midwest Record just posted:
ROBERTA DONNAY & the Prohibition Mob Band/My Heart Belongs to Satchmo: Going off on her own since Dan Hicks passed, she evokes all the eras of the past that have touched her and does it without nostalgia or self consciousness. Doing it with real love for what it is and imbuing it with her passion, this full length tribute to Louie Armstrong has got to have Satch smiling down on it. Evoking the jazz age like it's happening in real time, the velvet vocals, the crack backing crew and the entire vibe is a big, fat home run. You don't have to like oldies to love this, it's real music for real ears.
The Prohibition Mob Band exists to revive the Jazz Age; Their first CD spent 9 weeks on Jazz Radio charts. “Bathtub Gin” CD made the list of BEST Albums in DownBeat Magazine.
