Donna Hopkins Band
Donna Hopkins is the real deal. Born and raised on a North Alabama farm, Donna witnessed life in the South first hand, channeling it into the soulful music that she creates and performs. Music runs in her family; her mother performed rock and roll in go-go boots and mini-skirts and her grandfather was a fine bluegrass musician in his own right.
Following in their footsteps, Donna is a consummate seasoned performer with many songs and performances under her belt. As a young teenager, Donna recalls sneaking out to the MGM Grand in famous Muscle Shoals, Alabama to jam with David Hood, Roger Hawkins, and Harrison Calloway…it’s not many who can say they cut their teeth with members of Aretha Franklin’s band!
Georgia Music Magazine calls Donna Hopkins a “genuine triple threat” due to her prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. In addition to her other talents, Donna also wears the producer’s hat, working with and developing up-and-coming talent in the Atlanta area. As much at home in an intimate listening venue as she is on a giant festival stage, Donna Hopkins performs both solo and accompanied by the perfectly seasoned group of musicians who make up the Donna Hopkins Band, and is always a crowd pleaser.
