Donald Keesing / Bio

Donald Keesing started gigging with the semi-experimental D.C. punk band White Zombies in 1982. In 1988 and 1989 he sang and played guitar for psychedelic proto-grunge, folk/punk band Rain Crow, in 2008-2010 with twanging garage pop rockers Dollar Bin and their Celtic Folk/Acoustic Americana alter ego Dogs Among the Bins. An environmental activist, Keesing often plays benefits and rallies. He has also played for disabled veterans, eldercare patients and the homeless. So it's conceivable he may not be a complete douchebag, but the jury's still out on that. The celebrated Mr K performs feats of Classic Country/Americana on trampoline with tiki torches ablaze. Family roots in Oahu go back a couple generations to 1934, so ya, we been on island as long as Smith's Union Bar. So please don't bring the pow pow... Thence backwards to New Zealand. On the other side are frontier roots of all kinds in the mainland so the ancestors can help with that authentic high lonesome as needed too. From the bubbling steamy mud pits of Rotorua to the dense fog of the Great Smoky Mountains a great fool was destined to stride forth with blithe arrogance to become a legend in his own mind and none other...In a damp cardboard scabbard his aluminum foil sword rests ready. Inscribed upon it's puckering hilt is scratched the reckless, feckless motto- "Surely none other than Reverb Nation can and will make me a huge rock star! How ever could they not?". Did I mention he's currently owed $5.31 in royalties. In a few months that may even add up to $10 and be direct deposited in his meager bank account. So please, for the love of mercy buy something!!!!! He really, really needs the money. .* cue uncontrollable sobbing * My country tis a bitch, I never will be rich it really stings....
