New Orleans is known for vibrant entertainment that dazzles with costumes, makeup, color, sound and often over-the-top action. Bag of Donuts has fit right in since 1988. In fact, this band is so beloved it was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2019.
This musical quartet perfectly embodies its name: with a bag of donuts, you know there are donuts in there, but until you dump them out, you can never be sure exactly what kind. Here’s a band that defies genrefication with a seamless and startling mix of pop, heavy metal, kabuki, dance, theatrics, old-fashioned rock and roll and, yes, quite a bit of talent.
Don’t let the costuming fool you – these four New Orleans natives know what time it is, musically. Putting their own spin on the popular songs we all know and love across many eras, Bag of Donuts never fails to thrill and entertain from big-time festivals and sporting events to more intimate venues and weddings, where they’re hired to amaze and captivate.
If you’ve never seen this energetic group on a stage, it’s hard to put into words what you’re in for. Try this: the Village People meet Van Halen meet Slipknot meet Madonna meet KISS – and that’s only five donuts out of a baker’s dozen. With amazing musical talent, engaging showmanship and busy choreography all the way through, a Bag of Donuts show for your event will leave you and your guests amazed.
