Brain’s group, the TEX PISTOLS, is a throwback to the days of country superstars like Ray Price, Faron Young, Bob Wills and the Sons of the Pioneers. The band’s originals sound like Nashville 1965, and in some cases, Texas 1933.
Donny Parenteau knows WHAT IT TAKES to be successful in the Canadian Country Music Industry. Donny was born and raised in Prince Albert SK, and raised a bow to a fiddle in 1981. After mastering the intricate technique in playing this instrument, he expanded his versatility to play other instruments like the mandolin, electric and acoustic guitar and the unique double neck mando-caster/ electric guitar. With his superior vocal ability added to the mix his performances bring an easy transition of Classic Country to Blues to Easy Rock.
