MASSIVE DONUT performs a wide variety of traditional [and frankly, non-traditional] Americana-ish music. Kind of a string band, kind of a jug band, kind of a lot of different kinds of bands, but definitely a fun band. They totally rocked at the last two Washington Folk Festivals and got people dancing in the aisles.
Massive Donut is comprised of: Pearl Bailes —wicked good harmonica, vocals and sunny disposition; Brendan Bailes —hi-precision washboard and kazoo, vocals and dashing demeanor; Brent Meier, bass and maybe vocals; Charlie Bean —driving guitar, vocals, and million dollar smile; Skip Casale —mandolin and guitar, vocals, and endless non-sequiturs.
Put all these people in a band and it’s a high energy ball of fun.
Massive Donut: A fairly wholesome family experience.
