Donohoe & Grimes Project

About us:

Donohoe & Grimes / The Donohoe & Grimes Project is an Albuquerque based acoustic duo, trio or 4 piece (depending on your needs and budget) comprised of Jeff Donohoe on acoustic bass/vocals (and occasional Irish tin whistle) and Mike Grimes on acoustic guitar/vocals (and occasional harmonica) as a duo and  Donnie Frank on percussion as a trio.  They now usually perform as a 4 piece with Vaughn McMillan on lead electric Guitar and a myriad of other instruments when a more danceable, upbeat, full band with an electric twist is what you want.

     From the Beatles, Jethro Tull and David Bowie to Elton John, Pink Floyd and the Eagles to the Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, and Collective Soul; they play a wide variety of rock/pop/folk covers from the 60's to the present with style and sound all their own.    

      Complete with their own state of the art sound system, they play regularly at many establishments in Albuquerque and surrounding areas including Dragonhorn Tavern, O'Niell's Irish Pub, Hard Rock Casino, Santa Ana Star Casino,  Jinja Bar & Bistro, El Patron Restaurant & Cantina, The Barley Room, Ned's Bar & Grill,  The Angel Fire Ski Resort and the Albuquerque International Sunport among others.

     In addition to being talented musicians, they pride themselves on being prompt and professional.

 

"With tight harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles or Simon & Garfunkel, they have a surprisingly full sound for a duo, in part due to Donohoe's ability to play lead on an instrument usually delegated to background accompaniment."    --  ABQ Journal
