About Bag of Donuts

Since their creation in 1988, Bag of Donuts has entertained — and offended — thousands of people by stealing their hearts, as well as their songs. Covering a wide variety of music from the 1960's through today's top hits, this New Orleans-based quartet is known for wild stage antics, outlandish costumes, and strange renditions of popular tunes. Despite the silliness, Bag of Donuts is a professional band with an outstanding reputation.

They’ve won numerous awards throughout their history and play over 100 dates a year. In 1999, the Donuts released their debut CD, Glazed and Confused. Two years later, they released Live in New Orleans, recorded at a sold-out show at the House of Blues. In 2012, they released their first original single "Put 'Em Up," a Louisiana sports-inspired rally song.

The band is made up of four characters: Kevin George is the thunder behind the storm with his drum kit. Jonathan Hoerner is the Kiss-ing guitarist who makes sure the crowd doesn't forget the show is about rock 'n roll. Jerry Christopher, the Joker, adds more antics and jaw-dropping bass grooves. Bobby Hoerner, who joined this motley krewe in 2011, has over 20 years experience as a crowd-pleasing front man. The result is a more raw, more sexy, more powerful band.

Bag of Donuts remains a vital part of the New Orleans music scene and continues to play large festivals, galas, clubs, and major sporting events. There's an infectious energy to their shows that guarantees audiences of all ages will laugh and have a blast dancing and singing along.

Top Reviews for Bag of Donuts

"Bag of Donuts blew everyone away! These guys truly made our reception a party NO ONE will forget. The dance floor was full all night – even as we were second-lining to go home. The amount of energy and fun Bag of Donuts brought to our wedding reception was UNBELIEVABLE. The toilet paper roll shooters and the confetti also made for AWESOME pictures, too! HANDS DOWN, BEST WEDDING BAND, and absolutely worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY (and more)!"

"These guys helped make our reception the best night of our lives, and we've been told by most of our guests that it was the most fun wedding they've ever attended. Bag of Donuts did everything they promised and more, professionally and stress-free. You will not regret a night with these guys -- and please, invite us to the party!"

"Our wedding was a blast and the band set the tone. The Bag of Donuts were the first vendor that I booked. I actually booked them before officially booking the church and the reception. All I asked of them was: 1. Make sure they were in full BOD attire ;) and 2. Play whatever they thought would keep everyone dancing the whole night. EVERYONE was dancing, having a great time, and smiling from ear to ear. I can't wait to have another big event, just to have them play!"

 

"All I can say is WOW! Bag of Donuts was the perfect band for our perfect wedding! We were looking for a fun band to keep guests on the dance floor for the entire night and we picked the right band. They kept us dancing until the very end. They had people on the dance floor that never dance. My groom and I had the best time ever."

 

"Bag of Donuts made our wedding reception unforgettable and so much fun! Their energy helped everyone relax and have a good time — from our teenage cousins to our 80-year-old great aunt. We got so many compliments from our guests about what a blast the band was."

"Best band around! They played at my daughters wedding, and everyone had a blast! So many people approached us weeks after the wedding on how much of a great time they had and loved the band! They interacted with the guests and made the night so memorable. The entire band went above and beyond...Would highly recommend them for any function!"
