Bag of Donuts cover a wide variety of music from the 1960's through today's top of the pop charts, including TV shows, commercials and movies. They are a New Orleans based quartet known for their wild stage antics, outlandish costumes and strange renditions of popular songs. Since their creation in 1988, they have entertained and "offended" thousands of people by stealing their hearts as well as other peoples’ songs. Bag of Donuts remain a professional band with an outstanding reputation. They’ve won numerous awards throughout their animated history and perform 100 plus dates a year. In March of 1999, the Donuts released their debutCD "Glazed and Confused." Two years later they released their much-anticipated live CD, "Live in New Orleans," recorded at a sold out show at House of Blues. The band reinvented themselves in January 2011 with the change in front man Bobby Hoerner and the release of their EPK in August of 2011. Check it out on the Videos page.
In September 2012 they released their first original single “Put Em Up”, a Louisiana sports inspired second line rally song. Check it out on iTunes.
The band is made up of four characters: Kevin George is the thunder behind the storm, and has created an ingenious and comical way of utilizing a sample machine in conjunction with his drum kit. Jonathan Hoerner is the Kiss look-alike guitarist who makes sure the crowd doesn't forget the show is about rock and roll. Jerry Christopher, the Joker, adds more antics and jaw-dropping bass playing. Bobby Hoerner, added to the cast of characters in January 2011, has well over 20 years experience as a crowd-pleasing front man. The result has been a raw, sexier, more powerful band. These four members have many years of road training and entertaining under their belts and are ready to take this project to a new level. BOD remains a vital part of the New Orleans music scene as they continue to play large festivals, clubs and major sporting events.
The Donuts must be seen to be appreciated! There is an energy to their shows that is undeniable. They are guaranteed to make audiences of all ages laugh and enjoy themselves, provided they have beating hearts. With a little luck the world will come to know these whimsical, witty, yet humble fellows. Check them out at www.bagofdonuts.com and www.facebook.com/bagofdonuts.
