Casey Donahew Band part of OTD experiment
Oregon Trail Days is hoping their move to have the annual concert start the celebration rather than finish it will be a success. The Casey Donahew band, an up and coming country band with local ties, will perform Saturday night at the Five Rocks Amphitheater. Concert Committee Chairman Bill Peters believes the move to the beginning of the celebration could be the catalyst to bring in more people.
The Casey Donahew band mixes some rock-leaning melodies with a strong dose of twang, be it in the vocals of Casey Donahew or the strong fiddle from Josh Moore.
The other members of the band include a local connection, lead guitarist J.J. Soto, the son of Drivin' Dynamics founder Larry Soto. Donte "TAZ" Gates is the drummer, Steve Stone is on the base guitar , and A.C. Copeland is on piano. The band has had two singles including "Double Wide Dream" and "Let Me Love You".
The gates open at the Five Rocks Amphitheater at 6 p.m. Saturday and the music starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.
