From Don, September, 2011

"Yeah, yeah, tooting my own horn (or just my wife would say.) Here is an interesting short film on a party in May our band played at. The washboard player is the owner of the Hard Times Chili parlours, the woman is the chief painting conservator of The National Gallery of Art, the harmonica/vocalist is head curator of The National Gallery of Art, the guitarist (not me) is a bigwig at Freddie Mac, and the bass player (red jacket) is a lawyer of some renown (hsssssss...)."

Here are three more videos of Don Performing: 1, 2, 3. He has even cut one album as the lead performer!
