ARE YOU AWARE?
ARE YOU AWARE?
Our band is inspired by connecting with others through the love of music. Discovering shared passions with others with differing backgrounds via performing and appreciating music is the driving force of the band. In addition the feeling that comes from being purposefully present in the moment while performing our music to our crowd is impossible to replicate with anything else!
Taco Donkey traces it's beginnings back to Hilton Head Island where three young natives founded the band as an opportunity to spread the laid back happiness the island is known for. The Big Bamboo on the south end of the island is where we spent many hot summer nights learning how to keep a vibing crowd together and enjoying themselves. One original member split paths. Jack Kiser (singer/multi-instrumentalist) and Keith Aikman (drums/percussion) continued the ride and connected first with Frank Nelson (singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist) and then Preston Jervey (multi-instrumentalist) to solidify the lineup. Taco Donkey loves entertaining a crowd and sharing the original music we create together.
Taco Donkey mashes many styles of rock, reggae, funk, blues, country with a laid back positive attitude resulting in a pleasingly distinct sound. The lyrics found in our music are revealing, soulful, sometimes tongue in cheek and inspired by the experiences we have encountered personally or in art we have absorbed. We’ve written about happiness, pain, historic events and enjoy telling partial stories, allowing our fans to fill in the gaps and connect the lyrics to something going on in their own lives.
