Casey Donahew Band
The "Donahew-it" work ethic
With their latest release, Moving On, The Casey Donahew Band are quickly
becoming one of the hottest names in Texas Country, drawing fans at home and
beyond. Capacity crowds are showing up this spring to see the Casey Donahew
Band’s dynamic live performances with over 1300 at the Grizzly Rose in Denver,
CO and Tumbleweeds in Stillwater, OK recently hosted 3000 fans for CDB. Their
first performance at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo this February drew
an impressive 10,800 fans into the AT&T Center. SOLD OUT shows in 2010 include
Fort Worth’s legendary Billy Bob’s Texas with 5500 fans and 12000 at Lone Star
Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Casey Donahew Band owes their quickly expanding fan base to playing 200 dates
a year playing State Fairs, Rodeos, Dance Halls, Festivals, headlining and opening for stellar acts like the Randy Roger’s Band and Kevin Fowler in front of huge crowds.
The “Donahew‐it” work ethic includes self‐releasing four CD’s in the past five years on their Almost Country Label. Texas Music Magazine’s recent review calls Moving On “a vibrant collection matching eternally restless anthems against engaging narratives, rattles and rolls and rumbles like a youthful Robert Earl Keen fronting Reckless Kelly. Lone star idealism links kindred spirits.” The CD charted on
Billboard Top 200 at #126, #3 Heatseeker and #28 on the Country Charts(September 09) selling 14,000 copies in 5 months with single “Ramblin Kind” topping the Texas Music chart at #1.
