“This summer brings a return to roots for LaPlace-born musician By ROBIN SHANNON Published by L’Observateur LAPLACE – A San Francisco-area modern rock band with a local connection is starting to gain some traction as the group prepares to move to the LaPlace area this summer. Vocalist Mick Donovan, lead guitarist Erik Ezrin and bassist and drummer John Walden make up the Mick Donovan Band. The group recently signed with an independent record label, and their debut, self-titled, six-song record was released March 1. Walden, a LaPlace native, said the group formed in 2009 through ads taken out by Donovan on the job listing site craigslist.com. “Mick had been in other groups and did some writing in the past but wanted something of his own,” Walden said. “When he ran the ads, Erik signed on first, and I followed. We jammed a few times, and that was pretty much it.””
