Q: What is the difference between "Donohoe & Grimes" and "The Donohoe & Grimes Project"
A: "Donohoe and Grimes" is just Jeff and Mike. The "Project" has Donnie on drums and can have Vaughn McMillan on lead guitar. Since we play with many incarnations, it's simpler to just call ourselves "The Donohoe and Grimes Project" if it's not just the 2 of us. We still play a lot of the same songs as a duo or trio or full band (with a few exceptions) but the addition of drums and lead guitar gives us a more full, dynamic and upbeat sound. That doesn't necessarily translate to loud either. We have played in many dining establishments and we're able adjust the volume to the situation. We realize that there are some situations that a duo is more appropriate so we offer that option as well.
Q: How much do you charge?
A: That varies on whether it is 2, 3or 4 of us, whether it's a weekend or weeknight, how far a drive etc. We start at $150 for the 2 of us for a 3 hr gig in the city during the week. best bet would be to get ahold of us and let us know what you are looking for.
Q: Do you have any CD's?
A: Not at this time. We don't have easy access to a studio, don't write our own material and frankly, we prefer playing to people over recording.
