Donnie Mayer / Bio

It all started in 1958 when my father gave me a set of bongo drums. In 1959 my dad gave me my first piano lessons. By 1964 I started the drums, finally getting a set of 67 Slingerland. When 1968 ROLLED around it was time for the guitar. Hitched to Woodstock 1969; it was the best three days of my life. We hippies we're gonna change the world and I guess in some ways we did... In 1992 & 1995, I was introduced to the synthesizer (Rolland D-10) & electric bass. Started songwriting in 1970 on the acoustic guitar mostly. I believe your word is your bond.
