Imagine lyrics and spoken word pieces evocative of writers as vast as Lou Reed, Jim Morrison, T.S Elliot, Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll and Dr Seuss. Now wrap that in theatrical atmospherics which conjure up flavours of of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band in a diversity-friendly package of powerful pop rock intertwined with powerful Avant Garde poetry, gestural signing and characterisations.

“I thoroughly recommend an audience with a Donna and the Aspinauts event if you are ever given the chance. Each of your five senses will be buzzing before the end of the first song, and by the end of the show, you'll be definitely Aspi-fied."
- Heidi Everett
“The Aspinauts stage presence is one no other band can contend with. I was taken on a wacky rollercoaster ride that spat me out at the end feeling empowered and inspired. This band explores world issues, personal conquests and how difficult it is circumnavigating the social world. A must see band for all!”
- Adele Kristens
“The lady is a true entertainer. She told amusing tales of life on the edge of society and made me envious I didn’t join her there. Tongue-in-cheek? It cannot be genre-defined.”
- Jo Robinson
