Meet The Walkers

The performance is an audience interactive show. Being a dance band, the audience is inspired before the first chord is struck to get up and dance. Donny encourages audience participation with chorus lines in some tunes. Band members put on hats, mustaches, and glasses during some tunes for a bit of mirth. There are several guest vocalists that allow Donny and Sunny a mini break with their voices. Stories and jokes are a new part of the show. Donny is there to have fun with the audience, not just to play to them.

Donny Walker and Fo’ sho began as a dance band in the summer of 2019. Pastor Thomas Rose of OC Singles for Christ asked Donny if he had a dance band. That planted the seed for Donny to assemble a “for sure” dance band, which resulted in Fo’sho. The original Fo’sho included Tim Sharman who played keyboard and guitar, Michael Crandall on bass guitar, and Josh Barry on drums.

Since 2019, Donny has played at Christian dance venues such as Angel City coffee house, OC Singles for Christ church, MoonGoat Coffee Roasters, Single+Passion ministry, and Silky Sullivan’s Restaurant and Irish Pub. Donny has also been invited to play at the American Cancer Society’s annual Run for Life events.

We have decided on a name change in September of 2022. The new name is Donny and the Walkers. It is in keeping with the bands Christian walk.
